The Ulrich Museum of Art at Wichita State University has acquired 125 fine art photographs by the internationally acclaimed Kansas-born artist Gordon Parks (1912–2006).

The acquisition was made possible by a donation from The Gordon Parks Foundation, a $150,000 challenge grant from Paula and Barry Downing and matching funds.

Combined with the extensive collection of Parks papers, letters, personal photos and manuscripts housed in University Libraries Special Collections, Wichita State has become a significant institution of study for scholars of his life and work.
