Our exhibition programming is open to all art forms, but with a strong emphasis on installation and performance art. Resident Artists from across the country spend two-week residencies in Wichita to complete an installation of their work and act as catalysts with fresh ideas and dialogue. Local artists and writers, student groups and community members access the resident artist’s creative process and respond with new work through exhibitions, essays and/or events. Discussion sessions, artist talks, potlucks and exhibitions foster further creative explorations.
The Wichita Creatives Emergency Relief Fund was created for individuals working in the art and creative sector who have been impacted by the current public health crisis. The primary concern is for the well-being of our community’s creatives - specifically, independent artists, musicians, performers and others who work in a creative capacity. The fund will provide $500 rapid response, need-based grants to help offset the lost wages affecting so many in our creative community.
Harvester Arts received funding for general operational support from the City of Wichita.
For 12 years, the City of Wichita has granted funding to local arts organizations to recognize, preserve and celebrate Wichita’s rich arts and cultural heritage - a heritage that has a tremendous impact on all residents’ quality of life.
