Kansas State Federation of Art Collection

Introduction

The Kansas State Federation of Art was created around 1932 and from the beginning K-State faculty served as officers and members. According to a flyer of the organization, its purpose was:

"...a cooperative organization of clubs, art associations and libraries, as well as the art departments of schools and colleges. The Federation makes exhibitions, lectures, and other services available to its members at a minium of cost. Its purpose is to stimulate and promote ever greater interest in art, and in the work of this region."

After being inactive for a number of years, members of the organization met in 1993 and agreed to finalize operations. The organization's funds were placed in the Kansas State University Endowment to establish a scholarship for a KSU art student.

Records of the KSFA were donated to the University Archives of Kansas State University in the early 1970s. The following is a container list of the holdings, 1953-1971.
