Thank you to the volunteers and supporters of A SculpTour Affair
A SculpTour Affair, the roaming party celebrating the Martin H. Bush Outdoor Sculpture Collection on the campus of Wichita State University was Saturday, May 23. The celebration, organized and designed by a committee of creative, dedicated volunteers and led by chair Genevieve Gordon Farha, raised both awareness of the sculpture collection on campus and essential funds for the Ulrich Fall exhibition POSTDATE: Photography and Inherited History in India. An immense thank you to the SculpTour Affair committee and the Ulrich Alliance for your support, time and involvement the past 15 months in planning this spectacular event. Thank you to our hosts, sculpture sponsors and event sponsors for your contributions to the evening and the future programs of the Ulrich. And, thank you to all of our patrons who attended or donated to our first Alliance gala. We are ecstatic and looking ahead to our second gala in May of 2017.

Volunteer Spotlight: Scott Martin
Scott Martin has been volunteering with the Ulrich for a year. Scott enjoys meeting new people at Ulrich events and the opportunity to view art. The Ulrich has benefitted from Scott’s professional skills in the audio/visual field. Scott’s contributions of time and energy help make Ulrich events outstanding.
