Topeka, Kan. - The Mulvane Art Museum at Washburn University will host a gallery talk by artist Rachel Epp Buller Thursday, Feb. 2. Buller will discuss her work in the Mulvane’s current exhibition "Invitations to Listen," which explores how listening can be a full-body act of care, connection and healing. This event is free and the public is welcome.

What: Gallery Talk with artist Rachel Epp Buller

When: 1:30 – 2:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 2

Where: Mulvane Art Museum on the Washburn University campus

Details: “Invitations to Listen” features art that Buller created in response to her daily walks during a residency in Canada. While on her walks, she explored how listening can be a mindful act carried out not just with the ears, but with the whole body. She strives for a listening practice that is full of care so that it becomes a way of attuning herself to her surroundings. Her art invites you to slow down, ground yourself in the here and now and listen. “Invitations to Listen” is presented in conjunction with Washburn University's 2023 WUmester theme of health and healing. The art in this exhibition suggests that mindful movement and attentive listening could present important pathways toward healing our bodies, minds, relationships with each other and connection to the natural world. 

      The Mulvane Art Museum is open 12 – 7 p.m. Tuesdays; 12 – 5 p.m. Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays; and 12 – 4 p.m. Saturdays. The ArtLab is temporarily closed to the public. For more information, visit the Mulvane Art Museum website at or call 785-670-1124.
