A $700,000 gift from the Barton P. and Mary D. Cohen Foundation funded the creation of the Kansas Focus Gallery in the first-floor space formerly occupied by the museum shop. The inaugural exhibit (above), which opened in February 2016, featured works by New-York-based Lori Nix, an artist born and raised in rural Norton, Kan.
