Events

Ulrich events offer a playful discovery of the visual arts. The Ulrich staff works closely with the Ulrich Alliance, and student groups across campus to produce creative and unique art exploration for families, teens, and adults. Family Fun Days, Sculpture Glow, Exhibition Opening Receptions, and our biennial fundraiserA SculpTour Affair are carefully crafted events designed to enhance art experiences while providing educational and entertaining connections to art. Partner projects allow the Ulrich to connect with our community at the Museum across campus and in our neighborhoods. Community outreach takes the Ulrich story to street fairs, festivals, community centers, and citywide celebrations including Empty Bowls Wichita, Party for the Planet, Northend Urban Arts Fair, and OpenStreets ICT. 

A SculpTour Affair | Sunday, October 9 | 2-5 P.M.

A SculpTour Affair, a biennial event, celebrates the renowned Martin H. Bush Outdoor Sculpture Collection, considered to be one of the top ten collections on university campuses across the U.S. The 81 pieces in the OSC include gems by internationally recognized artists Alice Aycock, Joan Miró, Barbara Hepworth, Fernando Botero, and Tom Otterness, among others. The event supports the Ulrich Museum of Art’s exhibitions, public programs and in-gallery learning opportunities for more than 4,000 K-12 students each academic year.

Please join us for a late afternoon stroll with friends and art lovers, cocktails, delicious food, music, and a bit of the unexpected at our next SculpTour Affair in Fall 2022.
