Art For Your Ears: Last concert of the summer is tonight
The Calamity Cubes! bring their genre crossing mix of thrashicana—a blend of americana, country, rock and punk music—to the Ulrich tonight. The concert will be held on the south lawn of Wilner Auditorium. Bring your lawn chairs or a blanket and enjoy the shade provided by the tall trees surrounding Wilner Auditorium as the Calamity Cubes! bring their stories from the road home to Wichita. Free admission, light refreshments provided. This summer the Ulrich provided the community with a variety of talented musicians, and the response has been tremendous, tonight’s concert is the last of the Art For Your Ears season and it’s going to be a wonderful finale.

2 Tons Under
2 Tons Under is an annual steamroller event hosted by Tornado Alley Press and the Ulrich Museum of Art. Printmakers from three different universities along with local high schools will hand carve 4‘x8’ wood blocks that will be steamroller-printed live outside of the Ulrich Museum. Carvers will make “Exquisite Corpses” inspired by the French Surrealist concept in which artists collectively contribute interchangeable parts that are assembled to create one whole unique body. See the steamroller in action while enjoying food and live music, and buy a T-shirt fresh off of the screen printing rack.
