As Above, So Below Art Gallery
KU School of Medicine, 1010 N Kansas, Wichita, KS 67214
KUMC Wichita Clinical Trial Unit and Wichita Collegiate School have teamed up to highlight Mental Health Month. Art work is used for self-discovery and as an emotional outlet allowing expression without words. The art work seen in this gallery was created by Jane Beilman who was diagnosed with Asperger’s at an early age. Children at Wichita Collegiate's Lower School (grades 1-4) added color to the ink drawing to show their interpretation. The children’s artwork inspired adults to also color.

The Mary Schafer Collection: A Legacy of Quilt History
Stauth Memorial Museum, 111 N Aztec Street, Montezuma, KS 67867
Born in Austria-Hungary in 1910 and later immigrating to the United States, Mary Schafer would become one of an important group of women who kept quilting and quilt studies alive between World War II and the 1970s revival of interest in quilts. A resident of Michigan for most of her life, she has long been recognized as one of the forerunners of quilt studies as well as the developer of one of the most important quilt history collections in the country. This exhibition traces the life and work of a unique individual, whose passion for an art form has contributed greatly to its survival. The quilts featured in "A Legacy of Quilt History" reflect the varying aspects of Mary's interests and work, from nineteenth century quilts she collected to more recent works she has designed herself and often collaborated on with other quilters. These intricate and colorful creations are supplemented with biographical information that draws from Mary's collection of her own letters and other ephemera, recently acquired by the Michigan State University Museum. The result is an often very personal expression of Mary Schafer's work, friendships and her lifelong efforts "to raise in popular esteem" the appreciation of quilts and their history.
