Derek Richards
Saturday, January 19
The Loony Bin

A regular on the Las Vegas Strip, Derek’s act is fast, fresh, and at times, fanatical. He brings the funny with tales about his blue-collar upbringing, his divorce, the holidays and his child-free existence.

A veteran of several USO tours, Richards was chosen as one of the first performers at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba after the base began guarding jailed Al-Qaeda terrorists. The comedy tour earned Richards national coverage in Newsweek. He also has performed at U.S. base camps in Iraq, Afghanistan, and more than 15 countries.

Kansas Land
Farm Photography by Larry Schwarm
The New Farmers Project by Photographer Bryon Darby, Desinger Tim Hossler, and Sociologist Paul Stock.
September 29, 2018–March 10, 2019

What does the Kansas farm look like in 2018? What is life like for the fifth-generation farmer, working land she has inherited from her parents? What is life like for the first-generation, sustainable farmer? How has the land itself changed, as water resources diminish but technological innovations become more available? Kansas Land features the recent work of two Kansas photographers, Bryon Darby and Larry Schwarm, in order to chronicle the life of farmers and the land they work in light of the social, economic, and environmental challenges of 2018. Both Schwarm and Darby’s photographs come from larger collaborative projects sponsored by different departments at the University of Kansas. These projects aimed at connecting the arts, environmental sciences, and sociology with the everyday lives of Kansans. WAM is eager to further the aims of these projects by exhibiting the photographs of Darby and Schwarm together.
