Barton School installs work by visually impaired artist

The W. Frank Barton School of Business at Wichita State University has partnered with Envision’s Arts Program to showcase five paintings from Savannah, a visually impaired artist, in the new Woolsey Hall. Her work, which resides on the third floor of Woolsey, can be viewed at any time during operating hours and is part of a rotating art installation with Envision in the space. Savannah’s art joins a variety of other original pieces from local artists located throughout the facility.

Savannah uses continuous spirals to create repetitive patterns in her art. Along with having her pieces displayed in Woolsey Hall, her work can be found on a special limited edition wine label with Liquid Art Winery and Estates in Manhattan, Kansas. Her art is also featured in the Envision Art Gallery and Community Engagement Center, which opened its doors earlier this year.

The Barton School’s Woolsey Hall art collection and promotion of visual artists are rooted in a commitment to helping its business students blossom. By developing creative and artistic mindsets, the Barton School opens its students’ eyes to innovative and inspired solutions.
