HAA permanent collection exhibition - a celebration of our 70th Anniversary
coming soon to our main gallery
on display august 23 - september 23

The Hutchinson Art Center would like to invite you to come and celebrate our 70th Anniversary with us. We will be having an Opening Reception on Friday, August 23rd where we will be displaying all our fine art pieces that have been collected over the past 70 years. We will be kicking off this wonderful occasion by unveiling of our new outside bronze sculpture made by Mike Livingston. Also, we will have lifelong patrons; past and present board members speak about the Permanent Collection and the past decades of the Hutchinson Art Association. The HAC wants to give thanks to the Humanities Kansas Organization for awarding us with the Culture Preservation Grant earlier this year. This grant enabled us to hire a Registrar Intern to fully access and digitize our collection. We couldn’t have done all of this without their support.

Please come join us for some refreshments and reminisce about the past 70 years!
