Event Details

A

Arthur Kraft (1922-1977) was a painter, sculptor, and muralist who, as he put it, wanted to be “left alone to create.”  Create he did and his work graced the covers of such magazines as Fortune and exhibits of his art were held in London, Rome, and New York among other locations.  While his life, art training, and career began in Kansas City, his life and work is interwoven with St. Joseph, Missouri, history too.  With that in mind, the Glore Psychiatric Museum featured exhibit from January 16 through July 16, 2020, will be Arthur Kraft:  Sounds of Fury.

Arthur Kraft:  Sounds of Fury exhibit will feature a collection of his black and white drawings, a selection of his paintings, and a copy of The Sounds of Fury from the Glore Psychiatric Museum collection.  The Guest Curator for the exhibit is St. Joseph resident and professional photographer Megan Wyeth.  When she was seven, her parents commissioned two paintings from Kraft. She still remembers his use of vivid colors. Arthur Kraft:  Sounds of Fury will open at the Glore Psychiatric Museum, 3406 Frederick Avenue, on January 16.   Visitors can tour the exhibit through July 16, 2020, during the regular museum hours of 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Monday through Saturday and 1 to 5 p.m. on Sunday.  Museum admission is $7 for adults, $6 for seniors, (62 and above) and $5 for students.  Museum members and children under six are free of charge. For more information, please call 816-232-8471 or visit stjosephmuseum.org to learn about St. Joseph Museum events, exhibits, and rental facilities.
