Grassroots Art Center

Description

This art center will educate, enlighten, and plain make you laugh, through its displays of naive art as part of the Midwest's cultural heritage, this museum boasts the regionally famous Inez Marshall collection of limestone sculpture in its permanent collection. Over a period of 50 years this Kansas woman carved enormous slabs of rock into such things as a 1914 Ford Model T with an engine, trunk, and working headlights. Other permanently displayed regional artists include Betty Miliken, who makes cameo portraits out of chewing gum and grapefruit rind, and M.T. Liggett, known for his found-object creations depicting politicians and celebrities with their heads inside old toilets. The center features rotating exhibits of works from throughout the state and beyond.
