Fort Hays State University's Sternberg Museum of Natural History has proudly hosted "John Cody's Moths," the largest and longest-running exhibition of Cody's artwork, over the past 14 months.
The last opportunity to view 80 of Cody's paintings along with accompanying interpretive exhibits at the Sternberg Museum will be Sunday, May 14. To celebrate the exhibit's run, Sternberg Museum will host "An Afternoon with John Cody," a closing reception, from 2 to 4 p.m. in the museum's Seibel Lobby.
Special events will begin at 3 p.m. with the public unveiling of Cody's most recent work, the announcement of the entire exhibit's visitors' favorite paintings and the regular monthly drawing for a signed, limited-edition John Cody print.
Museum members present at the reception will also have a chance to win a separate, signed, limited-edition print of Cody's artwork valued at $1,000. To enter the special drawing, members must check in at the registration table Sunday afternoon before 3 p.m.
