I volunteer for the Ulrich as a means to support others to express their talents. I feel the merging of artistic talents and volunteers is a symbiotic relationship which can benefit all people. The Ulrich being an institute of learning allows no boundaries for the expression of individual talents of which I appreciate being a part of. The Ulrich provides a facility for me to provide expression of my gifts in the support of others.Scott Martin
I have thoroughly enjoyed my 6 years of serving on the Alliance board; it is a talented group of community givers. So much of the self-growth and satisfaction I take away from volunteering is in working with the other board members and Ulrich staff. It is a privilege to get to plan opening receptions for the exhibits being shown at the Ulrich. Not only do you get to create a fun social gathering for the hundreds of patrons, students, and eager art goers, but you get to expand on the messaging of the show and present it in a lively 3 hour gathering; opening receptions are not to be missed at the Ulrich museum. I also accredit the Ulrich is giving me a much wider knowledge of and appreciation for Wichita State University; it is the driving force that brings me onto campus frequently; watching this University embrace change and growth is exciting for all in the community.Genevieve Farha
I’m fascinated by art, in particular contemporary art. Together with music, art has always been a focus of our lives, and time has only enhanced its significance. As a WSU student making my way to art history classes, the Ulrich Museum became part of my daily rhythm. On the invitation of Martin Bush, we attended the opening reception for Louise Nevelson, and the value of the Ulrich to the cultural life of the campus and the city became transparent. Our love affair with the museum and its art began. The Ulrich Museum is a space where every WSU student and every Wichitan can discover their own personal connection to contemporary art, as I have.Lee Starkel
