Richmond Chapter 17: Kansas and the Arts

The arts in the state of Kansas are something that people probably do not think about very often. Still, the state has had an impressive impact on the arts over the course of its history. They run the gamut from newspaper journalists like Jim Leher, writers such as Margaret Hill McCarter, a variety of musicians and actors. Students could research the works of the people listed in the chapter and create PowerPoint slideshows showing the works of some of these people. Another idea would be to look at selections of works that represent the state to see how they mention or portray the state of Kansas.
