President Dr. Jerry Farley by Becky

This portrait of Washburn University President Dr. Jerry Farley was painted by Topeka artist Becky Drager during the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020. Part of a series of paintings called Inspired by Topeka People, the portraits feature Topeka leaders and community members who inspire and foster hope.

Richard Ross, ba ’71, jd ’75, spearheaded a campaign to purchase the painting for the university with proceeds going to support the Mulvane Art Museum. More than 60 Washburn University alumni and friends from eleven states, plus Washington, DC and Sydney, Australia, contributed to the effort to acquire the painting for the Washburn community and install it in a location for all to see and enjoy.

$20, 375 raised.
