Artist Wilbur Niewald Wins Guggenheim
Artist Wilbur Niewald, professor emeritus of painting at the Kansas City Art Institute, began his year-long Guggenheim Fellowship on May 1.
Kansas City, Mo – The Guggenheim Fellowship is considered one of the most prestigious for artists, and for the next three months, Niewald will be based in Santa Fe, painting a much different landscape from his well-known scenic views of Kansas City. KCUR's Laura Spencer talked to Niewald last month as he worked on an etching at a favorite spot in Loose Park.
