David Israel Litan made his living in the oil business, but art was his passion and his gift. His lithographs portraying scenes of Kansas and aspects of Jewish life and faith sold widely throughout the Sunflower State during his lifetime, most of which was spent in Wichita.

The artist’s son, Robert Litan, noted economist and senior executive at the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation, discusses his father’s art and faith.

This event compliments the exhibit From Wichita to the Wailing Wall: The Art of David Israel Litan on display in the Guldner Gallery at the Central Library, from January 12 through February 26, 2012.
