Emporia Arts Center

“Art in Action” is the theme of the Sunflower Journeys show which will air on KTWU Thursday evening at 7 p.m.

One segment of the show was filmed at the Emporia Arts Center and includes an interview with Henry Schwaller as well as a presentation he gave there during a meeting of the Kansas Citizens for the Arts.

Kansas Citizens for the Arts is an advocacy group which formed after the governor eliminated the Kansas Arts Commission last winter. Without a state-funded arts program, Kansas lost all of its federal funding for the arts in 2011.



“If we, citizens, do not support our artists, then we sacrifice our imagination on the altar of crude reality and we end up believing in nothing and having worthless dreams.” ~ Yann Martel, Life of Pi
