As the university art museum for Wichita State University, the Ulrich Museum 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. The Ulrich Museum has amassed a nationally significant collection of more than 6,700 works that span the 20th and now 21st centuries. In over 40 years of operation, the Ulrich has judiciously developed its permanent collection with exemplary works by such acknowledged masters as Diane Arbus, Radcliffe Bailey, Zhang Huan, Sol LeWitt, Joan Miró, Claes Oldenburg, Gordon Parks, Kara Walker, and many more.
In 2020, the Ulrich launched its redesigned and expanded website as an extension of the Museum. An enhanced digital platform designed to enliven and enrich visitor experiences, it places art front and center. The site is an exceptional resource for viewers everywhere, offering in-depth information on exhibitions, programs, events, teaching and learning, over 100 links to archived videos, and the Collection Portal, which gives users direct access to more than 6,000 objects in the collection with expanded content and images.
The WSU Foundation acknowledges all financial donations to the Museum, which are in fact donations to Wichita State University. Donations are also acknowledged by the Museum and printed in the semiannual Ulrich Update newsletter.
