In August of 2012, the new state record blue catfish was pulled from the Missouri river in northeast Kansas, weighing 102.8 lbs. With these two special events, the catfish of Kansas have become something of a legend.

Actually, I know several secrets, and they all involve works of art. One lies in an alley, another sits on the sidewalk, and one’s in a back room. Since it’s not hush-hush, however, I’ll first reveal the best-kept secret of all…it’s the Coutts Memorial Museum of Art. Did you know it houses one of the largest collections in the Midwest of bronze sculptures by Frederic Remington? Or that is has the largest collected works in the country by world-renowned painters Americo, Eva, and A.B. Makk? The artwork here is diverse; you’ll find Renoir, Degas, Thomas Hart Benton, and Charles M. Russell. My favorite exhibit features the Prairie Print Makers, a group organized in 1930 to promote art in Kansas.
