Bob Workman, director of the Ulrich Museum of Art at Wichita State, has announced his plan to retire at the end of the school year.

Workman has been in his position at WSU since 2013. His last day at WSU will be June 30, 2018.

Workman, who graduated from WSU in the 1970s, has worked to bring a permanent Tom Otterness sculpture installation to campus next year. He has also launched a project to digitize works of art in the Ulrich’s collection, slated for completion in 2019.

Before coming to WSU, Workman was in charge of the development of the Flint Hills Discovery Center in Manhattan, Kansas. The center features exhibits that highlight Kansas history and preservation of the Flint Hills. Workman served as director of the center.

Kimberly Engber, dean of the Dorothy & Bill Cohen Honors College, will be in charge of a national search to find a new director for the art museum, according to a university press release.
