The artist will complete up to two portraits a day, for a total of thirteen by the end of her 9-day residency at Iowa State University. Portrait sitters were identified by various ISU colleges and University Museums and will join the nineteen Faces of Iowa State portraits painted by Frantzen during the run of the 2016 Iowa State Fair. The entire group of portraits will make up the Faces of Iowa State touring exhibition which will launch at the Brunnier Art Museum in late August 2017 and continue to sites throughout the state of Iowa. At the conclusion of the tour, the portraits will join the Iowa State University permanent Art on Campus Collection.
