The Kansas Board of Regents has launched the Artwork Loan Program to celebrate the visual arts by exhibiting select works by Kansas art faculty and students at the board office in Topeka. The partner for the 2015-16 academic year is Fort Hays State University, where more than 30 works of sculpture, ceramics, painting, printmaking, graphic design, drawing and photography from the faculty of the Department of Art and Design at FHSU are on exhibit.

"It's very exciting to be featured," said Karrie Simpson Voth, professor of art and design and interim chairwoman of the department. "We are very proud and honored to have our work displayed at the Board of Regents. We brought our best pieces to represent each area."

Celebrate the opening from noon to 1:15 p.m. Wednesday. Light refreshments will be served, and participating artists will be in attendance.
