Ulrich Museum home to art that reflects our world today

Celebrating beauty through artistic expression

In its 46 years of operation, the Edwin A. Ulrich Museum of Art has amassed a significant collection of about 6,700 works that span the 20th and now 21st centuries. It is a vital community resource, bridging the intellectual inquiry of the campus with the quest for enjoyment and lifelong learning in Wichita and the region.

There are many ways to support the Ulrich with varying levels of benefits.

  • Art Matters Endowment for exhibitions and programs
  • A la Carte Sponsorship for exhibitions and programs
  • New Collection Study Center – see the project overview below
