Force of Nature: The Art of Susan Chrysler White

At the Christian Petersen Art Museum - Campbell Gallery (first floor)
August 26 - December 19, 2019 

Force of Nature: The Art of Susan Chrysler White aims to provide a broader context for White’s studio and public art, as well as her aesthetic and exploration of contemporary social issues. White’s work explores global crises such as climate change, the negativity of digital data, and asks if all systems are doomed to fail. At the same time, her work also conveys a sense of interconnectedness and optimism.

Susan Chrysler White (American, b. 1954) is a studio and public artist. Iowa State has acquired several paintings, sculpture and site-specific works of art for the University Museums’ permanent collections. Her most recent installation was in April 2019 at The Hub titled Coalesce. She lives in Iowa City, Iowa where she is a Professor of Painting and Drawing at the University of Iowa.
