Robin Johnson is a lifer. Born and raised in Kansas – she has a feel for the Plains, the plants and the people. Come see her unique interpretation of the land she loves this Final Friday at Delano BBQ Company, 710 W. Douglas in Wichita, Ks.

Delano BBQ Company has become a bit of an art hotspot in its Delano location during the past two years. The fact that Blackbear Bosin had his studio in the old, brick building decades ago might help, but artists like Johnson flocking to the historic locale have also helped to build the tiny eaterie’s artistic street credit.  Like its former resident, Bosin, Johnson’s work has a strong connection to the land and the prairies.

Suddeth and Johnson have decided to put the evening to good use and help out another lifelong friend and her family, Beth Orth.

10% of the nights proceeds will be donated to: Mike Orth Family First Adoption Fund.

Mike Orth is the father of 8 children, 6 biological and 2 adopted. He always put his family first. He developed a painful, mysterious muscle disorder and eventually became a stay-at-home dad. Even though he was in almost constant pain, he cared for his children and put their needs for love, support, and stability first. Mike unexpectedly passed away in June of 2015. Beth, his wife of 20 years, and their 8 children have set up the Family First Adoption Fund in his memory to help loving parents give children a forever family.
