This limited-edition catalogue, “Kevin Mullins: Fire in the Paint Locker”, documents the retrospective exhibition of Wichita-based and internationally known artist Kevin Mullins. The exhibition of the same name opened at the Ulrich in April 2019 and will remain on display in all of the museum’s galleries until August 11, 2019. The catalogue, which features more than 100 color reproductions, including four fold-out views of major works, captures 30 years of Mullins’s career and includes installation shots documenting the exhibition. Five insightful essays by David Butler, former Ulrich director; Elizabeth Dunbar, former Ulrich curator; Bill North, director of the Salina Art Center; art critic Mike Odom; and artist David Reed are featured along with an introduction by Dan Rouser, who co-curated the exhibition with artist Ann Resnick.

Mullins was a beloved figure on the Wichita art scene long before his work started to receive international attention. From 1995 to 2010, he served as the curator for exhibitions at the Ulrich while still maintaining an active studio practice. In 1997, he and Resnick opened Project, an art gallery near Douglas and Hydraulic, helping to revitalize that area of town while also introducing world-class artists to the Wichita community.

The catalogue, “Kevin Mullins: Fire in the Paint Locker,” will be presented to the public at a special launch party at the museum from 5-7 p.m. on Saturday, July 13. The event is free and open to the public.
