Ulrich Museum of Art The Ulrich Museum of Art, an integral part of Wichita State University, was established in 1974 to enhance and support the university's educational and service mission. Since its founding, the museum has served as Wichita?s premier venue for contemporary works by established and emerging artists of national and international significance. A lively schedule of provocative and challenging exhibitions is complemented by an important collection of 20th-century painting, sculpture, and works on paper by such key historical figures as Milton Avery, Alexander Calder, Robert Henri, Willem de Kooning, Jacob Lawrence, Sol LeWitt, Joan Miró, Robert Motherwell, Elie Nadelman, Robert Rauschenberg, and Andy Warhol, and more contemporary, 21st-century artists including Radcliffe Bailey, Jennifer Bartlett, Enrique Chagoya, Salomon Huerta, Neal Jenney, David Levinthal, Nic Nicosia, Alan Rath, David Salle, Peter Sarkisian, Shahzia Sikander, Jessica Stockholder, David Reed and Kara Walker.

The museum is also well known for the Martin H. Bush Outdoor Sculpture Collection, a group of more than sixty 20th-century monumental works installed across WSU?s 330-acre campus that includes important pieces by Scott Burton, Luis Jiménez, Henry Moore, Louise Nevelson, Claes Oldenburg, George Rickey and Auguste Rodin.
