Ulrich Museum invites senior community to workshop

Join the Ulrich Museum of Art as it hosts the Love is Memory workshop for senior citizens from noon to 2 p.m. Thursday, March 2 at the Dr. Sam & Jacque Kouri Collection Study Center in the Ulrich Museum. The event is presented by Wichita artist Micala Gingrich Gaylord in conjunction with the Big Read 2023 and is open to senior citizens on- and off-campus.

This workshop will focus on the ways objects house memories. Elders are invited to bring a small object they are willing to leave behind that represents a memory of love. Attendees will also make a short audio recording about their object during the workshop.

Students, faculty and staff are also encouraged to invite senior family and friends to the workshop. The object and voice recording will become part of a larger community art piece, which will be on view in the exhibition “Micala Gingrich Gaylord: Love Is Memory,” from April 3 to May 20 at the Ulrich Museum.
