The Great Plains Art Museum is open late for First Friday on June 4.
Visit Elizabeth Rubendall Artist in Residence Kirsten Furlong in the lower-level gallery from 5-7 p.m.

Furlong’s artwork interprets the natural history and current grassland ecology in the Great Plains and beyond through drawings, monotypes, and paintings. Bird species—past and present—insects, animals, and plants are depicted along with mark making inspired by the lines and textures of the prairie.

During her residency, Furlong will create an artwork that will become part of the museum’s permanent collection. Visitors are encouraged to see the artist in action and ask questions.

The Elizabeth Rubendall Foundation has generously funded an artist-in-residence program at the Great Plains Art Museum since 2006. Artworks are commissioned by the museum to become part of the museum’s permanent collection, and the artist completes the commissioned artwork(s) at the Great Plains Art Museum. The full artistic process is on display for visitors and school groups, creating a unique program as well as enduring art.
