The Kansas African American Museum

601 N. Water Wichita Ks 67203



The Kansas African American Museum (TKAAM) received gift of 7 rare Gordon Parks Prints from the estate of the late Jo Zakas 
Jo Zakas  Jo Zakas, lifetime Wichita resident, entrepreneur, world traveler, artist and philanthropist has donated seven rare and  important Gordon Parks prints to the Kansas African American Museum (TKAAM).  Zakas, a lifetime friend of Marcia McCoy, purchased the prints to support McCoy's Gordon Parks projects. McCoy owns the largest body of Parks' last photographic works of art.  McCoy has focused on Parks lifetime, artistic achievements, and projects Parks and McCoy created together, just prior to his 2006 death.  In conversations prior to her unexpected death last year, Zakas and McCoy wanted to support TKAAM and its work promoting and preserving African American art, culture and history
The decision to donate the works had two goals: 1. Honor and preserve the legacy of Gordon Parks, particularly his artistic endeavors; and 2. Through tangible action, support TKAAM's educational legacy
