A Hotel Humanities weekend filled with ideas and conversation.

On July 22-23, Humanities Kansas transforms the historic Midland Railroad Hotel in Wilson into Hotel Humanities, a one-of-a-kind immersive weekend experience to celebrate the humanities. Inspired by the 50th anniversary of the movie Paper Moon, filmed at the Midland and other Kansas locations, we’ve booked the entire hotel to explore visions our state – past, present, and future – through art, history, literature, poetry, and song. It’s the movement of ideas in action.


The event begins at 12:30 on Saturday, July 22 in Lucas with guided tours through the Lucas Arts Triangle. In mid-afternoon, we move to the Midland Hotel in Wilson. The weekend ends at noon on Sunday, July 23. The fully renovated 20th century limestone hotel has 21 guest rooms, historic charm, and modern amenities.
