The Ulrich Co-Lab | Phase 2

June 24, 2024 — September 7, 2024

The Ulrich Co-Lab is a visitor-centered curatorial experiment where we encourage our visitors to share their thoughts, feelings, and responses to our permanent collection.

Historically, museums have sought to inform and educate the public by exhibiting artwork through an authoritative voice. However, this approach can be limiting—perspectives are inevitably left out or silenced while other narratives are amplified. The Ulrich believes we have much to learn from each other. Shifting away from a traditional approach, this participatory exhibit allows for an open exchange of ideas that aims to enrich the museum experience for everyone. The goal is to create a feedback loop, revitalize the museum space, and represent a collective identity.

The Ulrich Co-Lab will take place at our Grafly Gallery over the period of two years. This coming Spring the experiment will invite our visitors to reflect on their connection with Wichita through different participatory techniques.

Our 2024 Fall exhibitions and associated programs are made possible by the generosity of Ulrich50 donors, for which the Ulrich is very grateful. The Ulrich extends sincere thanks to members of Ulrich Friends with Benefits, whose ongoing support makes programming possible. The City of Wichita and Wichita State University provide funding support for the Ulrich’s general operations.
