The Wichita Art Museum is the largest art museum in Kansas. The museum was established in 1915, opened in 1935,and expanded into the current facility in 2003. The permanent collection includes more than 6,000 works of art, but large portions of the museum are devoted to traveling or temporary exhibits such as Regions of Illusion: The Drawing of Steven Graber and there are usually several temporary exhibits at the same time.

Wichita Art Museum's collection of American art spans three centuries of painting, sculpture, works on paper, and decorative arts, as well as an wxpanding glass collection.

The Wichita Art Museum is roomy and light, a place where both adults and children feel comfortable and find works of interest.
