“See Kansas” Art Exhibit

View the “See Kansas” art exhibit on display at the Abilene Public Library now through Aug 7th.

Produced by Parks and Green Spaces Art Projects, the exhibit features the work of nine artists from across the state, celebrating iconic and historic Kansas landscapes. Among these is the latest addition, “See Abilene,” highlighting many aspects that contribute to Abilene being recognized as the Best Historic Small Town. This exhibit was brought to Abilene by a collaboration between the Abilene Convention and Visitors Bureau and Abilene Public Library.

“The “See Kansas” Art Project spotlights some of the most beautiful outdoor spaces in the state,” says Mary Gage, director of the project. “Nine Kansas artists were challenged to channel the beloved style of the National Parks Posters of the 1930s and ’40s and produce unique new images for Kansans of favorite Kansas places. We’re looking forward to sharing the exhibit of the artwork, as well as the new “See Abilene” poster, created in a similar style, with the community of Abilene this summer.”
