Newman University will present a Final Friday interactive performance entitled “Mystery Room” by Wichita artists Hallie Linnebur and Meghan Miller. The opening reception will begin at 5 p.m. and will last until 10 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 25 in the Steckline Gallery.
Linnebur and Miller are two friends based in Wichita who specialize in the creation of immersive, magical installations; interactive, experience-driven art; whimsical parade floats; and bizarre costumes.
“This piece will be very different than anything we have done before,” said Director of Visual Arts Mary Werner.
The Steckline Gallery hosts eight Final Friday events from August to May in addition to special “Art for Lunch” artist lectures which take place the first Tuesday following each opening. The gallery features professional artists who work in a broad range of disciplines and provides the opportunity for students, faculty, staff, and the community at large to interact with the artists, expand their view of art and culture, and appreciate creative expression.
Linnebur and Miller describe their exhibit as being “a lush terrain, teeming with a unique assortment of otherworldly flora and fauna, from which the Reign Flora XVI Galactic Region Wildlife Preserve has materialized for a limited time.”

The interactive exhibit will be on display for viewers from Nov. 25 – Dec. 16. The Steckline Gallery is free and open to the public Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m, or by appointment. For more information, contact Mary Werner at [email protected], or call 316-942-4291, ext. 2199.
