Artist Talk: Lori Nix, "Accidentally Kansas"
Location: 210 McKnight Art Center

Join the Ulrich Museum of Art for Nature's Toolbox artist talk, "Accidentally Kansas," with Kansas-born, Brooklyn-based photographer Lori Nix.

Displaying a world somewhere between reality and illusion, Lori Nix breaks the mold set by many photographers, constructing elaborate dioramas then photographing them without the benefit of digital alterations. Confronting challenges such as building materials, and lighting issues of scale and space, Nix creates micro-worlds from scratch on her studio tabletop. Influenced by the Hudson River School of Painting, philosophizing greats such as Kant and Burke even 1970s disaster films like "Towering Inferno," her photographs remind us of a world of natural phenomena, dangerous situations and all that threatens the belief that the universe is predictable.

Hailing from Norton, Kan., Nix lives and works in Brooklyn, N.Y. Her work can be viewed in the collections of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston and Smithsonian American Art Museum, Washington, D.C. She has exhibited internationally and has been featured in magazines such as WIRED, Photo Technique and Harper's.

Admission is free.
For more information, call 316-978-3664, email ulrich@wichita.edu or visit www.lorinix.net.
Open to WSU Community.

Mainstage Theatre Presents: The Learned Ladies
3-day event: 10/10/2013 - 10/12/2013
Location: Wilner Auditorium

Moliere's comedy, which takes a look at academic pretention, focuses on the lives of a group of "learned ladies" and their insatiable obsession for learning and high-brow culture of the conceited kind. The women attempt to advance themselves in every possible way, including housing a pretentious poet to be the centerpiece of their academic salon. Mix in a love triangle, a weak-minded husband, and a grammatically incorrect housemaid and you have one of Moliere's most beloved comedy of manners. Directed by Dr. Bret Jones.

Tickets for this event are $10 with discounts available and go on sale Sept. 19. For more information, call the WSU Fine Arts Box Office at 316-978-3233.
