Museum Musing

What’s great about cooler weather? It tends to inspire cooks to head to the kitchen. With the summer heat gone, ovens fire up more frequently and warm yummy foods that have vacationed for the long hot summer are once again enjoyed. Sweet or savory, it doesn’t really matter because I believe the Pillsbury Dough Boy® is right, “Nothing says lovin’ like something from the oven.” With Thanksgiving and Christmas looming on the horizon cooks are searching the web and thumbing through cookbooks looking for new twists on holiday classics. Need some help? Holiday Baking, with Anna Schremmer, November 16th at 6:00 p.m. in the Hansen Community Room will be a prime opportunity to learn how to make some of the ordinary holiday fare extraordinary. Registration is $10.00 per person. Want to learn more about Holiday Baking, contact the Museum at 785-689-4846 or email

Hand-painted Sign by Jeremy Lehning

Jeremy Lehning, November Artist of the Month, has set up his display of beautiful hand painted signs and stave art. As always, Jeremy’s goods are top of the line quality. All of the signs are truly painted by hand – free hand that is. Jeremy’s skills are most impressive and anything in his display would make a marvelous gift for any occasion.

Our current exhibit, Through My Eyes, continues to mesmerize viewers with its warm sun baked earth tones and gentle southwestern feel. Welcoming and comforting, this exhibit encourages one to sit, relax, and have a nice chat. Rhea Grandon, artist of Through My Eyes, would like nothing better than to find people spending a relaxing afternoon enjoying her art and each other’s company.

Rhea Grandon’s Through My Eyes is on display through December 3, 2017. The Museum is open Mon. through Fri. 9-12 and 1-4; Sat. 9-12 & 1-5; Sun. and holidays 1-5.  We are closed Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years.  The Museum is handicapped accessible and there is never an admission fee.  For more information about this and other exhibits, contact us at 785-689-4846. We hope to see you at the museum.
