As part of the Brunnier Art Museum's renovation project, there has been a focus to add works of art throughout the Scheman Building.
"This building (and all of the Iowa State Center) was originally built to be a cultural place for visual and performing arts. We hope this addition will make the whole building a more artful and colorful space," said Allison Sheridan, Collections Manager for University Museums. "In addition, this is a great way to introduce visitors to what they will see in the Brunnier Art Museum on the second floor."
Three new works of art were recently installed on the ground floor entryway in front of the elevators by carpenter Randy Fiscus from Facilities, Planning and Management (FP&M).
Two pastels by Ellen Wagener were installed on the north wall - Cyclone in the Great Gig in the Sky (3) and Cyclone in the Great Gig in the Sky (4). On the south wall is a work of art by Judy Pfaff calledYear of the Dog #9, created with woodblock, archival inkjet and hand painting. All are recent additions to the Art on Campus Collection.
