Learn about visual literacy utilizing Grant Wood’s iconic mural (1936-37) Breaking the Prairie Sod, which is located in the lobby of Parks Library. After experiencing visual literacy skills and techniques, attendees will learn how these skills can lead to understanding any work of art, from abstract to realism.
This series is presented in partnership with Ames Public Library, Ames Historical Society, Iowa State University Library, and University Museums.
