A Tale of Two Women: Louise Caldwell Murdock and Elizabeth Navas
"A Tale of Two Women: Louise Caldwell Murdock and Elizabeth Navas" celebrates the two female visionaries responsible for the formation of the Wichita Art Museum. In 1915, Murdock made it her mission to ensure that her hometown would have an art museum, commiting her family fortune to the purchase of a “significant collection” of American art. Murdock entrusted Elizabeth Navas, her friend and professional colleague, with the task of assembling the art collection. Together, the two women made an unsurpassable impact on Wichita and the surrounding region that continues today. Commemorating both WAM’s 85th anniversary and the 100th anniversary of women’s right to vote, the exhibition combines photographs, objects belonging to Murdock and Navas, and key Murdock Collection paintings.

Beginners Guide to Trading Stocks on Robinhood
The app is popular among young, first-time investors, as evidenced by its game-like interface. A flying confetti animation pops on the screen whenever you make a trade, and Robinhood sends you push notifications when there are updates in the market. If you do some proper research, Robinhood can, at the very least, serve as a good introduction to investing. But no matter how savvy you are at picking stocks, you’re highly unlikely to beat the market over the long term. (Which is why Money has always advised new investors to start with passively-managed index funds with proven track records instead.) Day traders will always try to game the system — even if it’s next to impossible to make boatloads of cash that way. And since Robinhood lets anybody with a bank account can buy and sell risky financial products, it’s no surprise that more and more people are opening up accounts.

Talks/Lectures
Big Read Poetry Workshop: Make It New with Northfield School of the Liberal Arts
Poet and educator William Coleman, of Northfield School of the Liberal Arts, will host a creative space via Zoom in which young people and adults will encounter ancient Greek myths and reimagine them. Just as Madeline Miller reinvents ancient stories, giving them powerful voices in our time, visitors ages 12 and up will engage in hands-on reinvention, guided by a mentor. In this 60-minute session, participants will encounter a Greek myth, learn how other poets have reinvented that myth, then be led to their own reinvention of that myth. In the spirit of Madeline Miller, each student will emerge from the "make-it-new space" with a new work of art: a poem of their own invention. Registration is required; call 261-8500 or register online at wichitalibrary.org/events. This program will be held online via Zoom. A link to the program will be sent to your inbox the day before and the day of the program.
