Sunflower Journeys Program 1608
Kansas Murals Project: An ambitious website created by two muralists from Lawrence to catalog the state’s murals. Dave Loewenstein and Lora Jost talk about some of the common themes presented in these murals and how they reflect the history of local communities. Thomas Hart Benton: Sunflower Journeys looks back on the life and work of Midwest artist Thomas Hart Benton. Viewers will learn why the artist’s “regionalist” style drew controversy in the East as well as here in the Midwest, and see some of the most famous examples of his work. Anthony Benton Gude: Sunflower Journeys meets Benton’s grandson, Anthony Benton Gude. Gude is continuing his grandfather’s tradition of painting murals at the family farm in Marshall County.
