"Collective Memory" IDEA Series To Take Place February 18th

Each year the Museum of Art at Pittsburg State University selects certain exhibits from its programming season to highlight through an interdisciplinary event entitled the IDEA Series (Interdisciplinary Education Through the Arts Series). This event is intended to generate discussion based on ideas suggested by the artwork from a variety of viewpoints. Join us on February 18, 2016 as we celebrate the extraordinary research and personal stories of faculty and local community members connected to this year's theme “Collective Memory,” inspired by two Pittsburg State University Museum of Art exhibitions:  
  • Collective Fusion will be displayed in Porter Hall’s Harry Krug Gallery from January 22 -April 62016. The Museum of Art celebrates the wide-ranging talents of faculty, staff, and Friends of Museum with an exhibit, “Collective Fusion.” 
  • Kansas People’s History Project will be on display from January 22 – April 7, 2016. Please visit Kansas History Project’s website for additional information about the project:
The IDEA Series has an incredible lineup of speakers. Mark your calendar for February 18, 2016. The presentations will take place throughout the day in the Overman Student Center's Sunflower Room with a reception to follow at 4pm in Porter Hall's Harry Krug Gallery.
