The McPherson School district has renewed their agreement to continue loaning the district’s art collection to the McPherson Museum for the purpose of displaying the art for public viewing.

The formal agreement is between USD 418 and the McPherson Museum and Arts Foundation and is effective for the next three years.

The McPherson Museum quadrupled in size when it moved to its current location in 2013 and has been featuring highlights from the McPherson Schools Art Collection, which began in the 1920s and 30s by local students who raised money to purchase works from prominent artists such as Whistler, Gustave Baumann, Birger Sandzen, Albert Krehbiel and dozens of others.

The public can view selected works from the McPherson school district’s art collection by visiting the McPherson Museum at 1111 E. Kansas Ave. The Museum is open from 8:00 to 5:00 Tuesday through Friday, and 1:00 to 5:00 on the weekends. It is closed Mondays and major holidays.

Admission is $5 for adults, $3 for seniors and students. Children 4 and under are free.
