Many thanks to Larry Hatteberg of KAKE-TV news in Wichita for the great coverage of the Art Lives! exhibition and the funding crisis for the arts in Kansas. He interviewed several artists during the opening reception, who each spoke passionately about the issue and their work, and he showcased the art of many of the other exhibiting artists as well. I was particularly pleased that he included footage from my Painting class at Bethel College. Here’s to hoping that we helped keep the arts funding conversation going. The Kansas legislature is currently revisiting the issue; whether or not they can get through without a line-item veto, we’ll see.
