From Wichita to the Wailing Wall: The Art of David Israel Litan
All Kansas City Public Library locations will close at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, November 26, and will remain closed all day Thursday, November 27, for Thanksgiving.
From Wichita to the Wailing Wall: The Art of David Israel Litan features original works of art reflecting the artist’s Jewish faith and his pride as a Kansan.
David Israel Litan was an oilman, but art was his passion and his gift. His lithographs portraying scenes of Kansas and aspects of Jewish life sold widely throughout the Sunflower State during his lifetime, most of which was spent in Wichita.
Major funding for programs at the Kansas City Public Library is provided by a generous grant from the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation.
