Envision Arts has partnered with The W. Frank Barton School of Business at Wichita State University to showcase artwork created by Envision artists who are blind and/or disabled for a three-year engagement. Displays will be rotated every six months featuring different artists. The first showcase features five paintings from Savannah which uses continuous spirals to create repetitive patterns in her art. Her work resides on the third floor of Woolsey Hall and can be viewed any time during operating hours.

“We are so happy to have teamed up with the Envision Arts Program to display Savannah’s wonderful work,” said Dr. Larisa Genin, Dean of the Barton School of Business. “We are here to foster creativity and help our students grow through impactful experiences. This beautiful art installation is a daily inspiration to embrace who you are and push yourself forward.”

“Envision is truly grateful for the ongoing support from Wichita State University and the Barton School,” said Michael Monteferrante, Envision President and CEO. “We believe a culture of health, wellness and unity is achieved when a community creates opportunities for all people to have equal access to employment, education and the arts.”

“We are also honored to be a part of the history of the incredible growth of this beautiful campus, and to have our work displayed alongside some of the most influential artists of Wichita that are installed throughout the building, not to mention the artists in the Martin H. Bush Outdoor Sculpture collection as well,” said Sarah Kephart, Envision Arts Program Manager. “The inclusion of Envision Arts in this historic moment at the Barton School and WSU is a testament to the mission and foundation of what it means to be a Shocker.”
