Night of Wonder is a wrap! The Friends of the Beach Museum of Art fundraiser, inspired by the “Museum of Wonder” exhibition, drew nearly 200 guests to the Beach Museum of Art on September 20, 2013.
Art was brought to life as performances, digital media, and sculpture filled the museum’s galleries and grounds. It was especially gratifying to see Kansas State University students and graduates of dance, music, art, and architecture featured so prominently. Their hard work (and that of their instructors) culminated in a fantastic interactive display of creativity.
Large-scale events like Night of Wonder couldn’t happen without support. Thanks to the Friends of the Beach Museum of Art, sponsors, vendors, performers, staff, and guests for making it such a magical evening.
The Marianna Kistler Beach Museum of Art furthers the teaching, research, and service missions of Kansas State University by collecting, studying, caring for, and presenting the visual art of Kansas and the region.
