MANHATTAN, Kan. (KSNT) – The Marianna Kistler Beach Museum of Art at Kansas State University is showing off a Kansas artist icon’s drawings, paintings, magazines and books.

The display is called “John Steuart Curry: The Cowboy Within” and features some of his images of the American West.

Liz Seaton, a curator at the Beach Museum, thinks people both young and old will enjoy the exhibit.

“I’ve been doing research on Curry for several years and I’ve been working with students who contributed some of their ideas to this exhibition,” Seaton said.

The Beach Museum of Art will hold a western-themed kick-off event from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sept. 28, which is free to the public.
