In 2015, the Mulvane Art Museum received a significant donation of paintings, drawings, sculpture, and archival material representing the lifework of Kansas artist, Rita Blitt. Sorting through and cataloging the hundreds of works is a monumental task that creates unique opportunities to engage students and communities in the research, interpretation, and development of exhibitions and educational programs for many years to come.

Rita Blitt has actively explored art since she was a child – from personal cards and messages for her family, spontaneous marks that dance across miles of paper to monumental sculptures that define neighborhoods and communities around the world. It is the vision of the Mulvane Art Museum for students, faculty, and guest curators to create exhibitions, performances, compositions, and interpretive programs that utilize the Rita Blitt collection and archives in ways that allow us to explore music, dance, art, and life through her work.
