Known as a “cultural oasis on the prairie”, the Baker Arts Center is an art education facility which promotes the arts in Southwest Kansas. A 5000 square foot three level handicap accessible building is the former home of Irene Dillon and Francis Marion Baker.
The Baker Arts Center offers a visual art exhibit that features national traveling exhibits, local one-artist shows, an annual juried art show, works from area high schools, and pieces from its own collection. Included in these exhibits have been pieces ranging from oil, acrylic and watercolor paintings, to sculptures, photography, quilt displays, handmade jewelry, woodworking, glassworks, and collages. A workshop area, a Discovery Center for kids, the Baker Memorial Room, a Library and a Sales Gallery, all make the Baker Center a delightful place to experience.
