Exhibit opening: L. L. Dyche's "Magic Lantern" Revisited
On display from November 2012 until April 2013, the exhibition "L. L. Dyche's Magic Lantern Revisted," will open with a reception for museum members and future members on Nov. 4 prior to a public lecture and performance at the Commons. The museum requests that guests who would like to attend the exhibition opening RSVP by 5 p.m. Oct. 31; call 785.864.4450. Lewis Lindsay Dyche thrilled audiences from small towns in Kansas to Chicago to New York, first with his skill in natural history displays and later with grand lectures about his adventures. Many of the glass slides that he displayed in his "magic lantern" talks, as well as many more detailing his taxidermic process, have not been seen by the public in more than 100 years and will be featured in this exhibition.
