Gordon Parks Museum open during annual celebration

Sep 20, 2022

We look forward to seeing everyone here at the 2022 annual Gordon Parks Celebration Oct 6 -8.

Staffers are moving most of the Gordon Parks Museum’s artifact collections along with photos from the archives room into the meeting room and lobby area of the Danny and Willa Ellis Family Fine Arts Center to accommodate public viewing during the annual celebration Oct. 6-8 at Fort Scott Community College.

Continued supply-chain issues delaying the repair of the museum’s air-conditioning unit are the cause for the change.

The date when repairs can be completed is still unknown at this time. “We want to thank everyone for their support and patience.”


Museum visits and tours can be scheduled for a later date by calling (620) 223-2700, ext. 5850, or by sending an email to gordonparkscenter@fortscott.edu.

We look forward to seeing everyone here at the 2022 annual Gordon Parks Celebration Oct 6 -8.
