Cowley humanities instructor to be heard on KMUW 89.1 FM


Cowley College humanities instructor Mark Flickinger will be the feature of a pair of hour long radio interviews on KMUW 89.1 FM on Oct. 20 and Oct. 25.

Flickinger, who recently donated an original oil painting of the Kansas landscape to KMUW for its fall fundraiser, will speak about a variety of topics. The first of the two on-air interviews can be heard from 8-9 a.m. Oct. 20. The second on-air interview will be conducted from 4-5 p.m. Oct. 25.

“It is going to be fun,” Flickinger said. “I am jazzed about it.”

The oil painting Flickinger donated to the station has been printed on coffee mugs and shirts and will be sold as part of the radio stations fall fundraiser, which will take place Oct. 20-29 at KMUW in Wichita, located at 3317 East 17th Street North. There will also be 25 prints of Flickinger’s painting given to donors.

KMUW is the public radio station at Wichita State University, the school in which Flickinger received his bachelor of fine arts degree in painting from in 1989.

“I have always got KMUW on so that I can work or grade papers and still listen to something,” Flickinger said.

The painting of the Kansas landscape is based on two places, one of which is located at Spring Hill Farm in Arkansas City, and the other a stream in Chautauqua County.

Flickinger, who teaches Painting, Drawing, and Art History classes at Cowley, will show some of his new paintings during the fundraiser. He is also currently working on paintings that will be on display at the American Legacy Gallery in Kansas City in November. The name of the show is “The Art of the Santa Fe Trail”.
