With Hannah Breckbill, Shelley Buffalo, Dr. Angie Carter and Patti Naylor
Join a panel of experts as they discuss the changing face of farming in Iowa. Panelists will include academics and practicing Iowa farmers who will examine the history and future of indigenous, queer, and female farmers working the land while developing more sustainable farming practices in Iowa. Building upon the meditation on the landscapes, environments and peoples from the exhibition Compelling Ground, this discussion will be moderated by Associate Curator Adrienne Gennett.
The program will be held on Webex and participants must register in advance to receive a meeting link. A recording of the program will be available after the event on the University Museums’ YouTube page.
Compelling Ground is curated and organized by University Museums. The exhibition is supported, in part, by the Iowa Arts Council, a division of the Iowa Department of Cultural Affairs, and the National Endowment for the Arts. Generous support was also given by: Dwight and Marilyn Conover; Debbie Gitchell in honor of Jon Fleming; Kate Gregory; Carole Horowitz; Betty and Dennis Keeney; Cal and Frankie Parrott; Dorothy and Robert Rust; Clifford Smith; and David and Marianne Spalding.
