Kansas Project to Focus on Lesser-Known Historical Figures

PITTSBURG, Kan. (AP) — Several groups are planning a statewide project that will combine history and art to spotlight lesser known but greatly influential figures and events from Kansas's past. The Kansas People's History Project is a partnership between the Douglas County Historical Society and five arts and education organizations from across the state. The Joplin Globe reports that the project will include the creation of a series of screen-printed broadsides with text narratives, a comprehensive website and a spring 2016 exhibition at the Watkins Museum of History. David Loewenstein, the artist responsible for the "Butterfly Effect" mural in Joplin following a deadly 2011 tornado, will host a Thursday workshop at Pittsburg State University to kick off the project.
