Art historian and University of Kansas professor emerita Marilyn Stokstad will give a special keynote address Thursday evening titled “Art Patronage in a Civil Society.”
The talk is part of the Midwest Art History Society Annual Conference, which takes place through Friday.
Stokstad is the author of “Art History,” an art history textbook first published in 1995 that is still in use in universities across the United States today.
She has also published “Art: A Brief History” and is currently working on a history of architecture book that she plans to publish within the next few years.
The talk will take place at 7:30 p.m. Thursday in the Regency Ballroom at the Best Western Airport Hotel in Wichita.
