Artist In Iowa: The First Century

Accompanying the recent Artists in Iowa: The First Century exhibition is a new major publication, written by Dr. Lea Rosson DeLong, which discusses the seventy works of art by over forty-five Iowa artists in the exhibition. The publication traces the earliest known art by the Meskwaki artist Wachochachi through the art of more recognized artists such as Lee Allen, Grant Wood, Christian Petersen, Christine Glasell and Eve Drewelowe who created New Deal murals, portraits, and captured scenes of urbanization in Iowa. The 258-page full color publication is available for purchase from the University Museums’ office during business hours. Cost is $45.00 each; cash, check or credit card accepted.

“Iowa has a distinctive artistic heritage; we have only to look for it, preserve it, and pass it on to the next generations.”
-Dr. Lea Rosson DeLong, art historian and exhibition curator
