Roger Shimomura, "Yellow No Same #11", lithograph, detail, 1992, Mulvane Art Museum permanent collection


If education is the heart of the Mulvane Art Museum, exhibitions are its life-blood.  They challenge, inspire, open minds, ignite ideas, and speak to us about the human endeavor.  Every artist and every exhibition has a voice.  All we need do is make an effort to listen.
