Stanley Museum of Art

Housed in a beautiful, new building, the University of Iowa Stanley Museum of Art is a dynamic and innovative teaching resource for the university and its surrounding communities. The collections include significant holdings of African art, Abstract Expressionism, works on paper, textiles, and ceramics, as well as paintings by modern masters such as Pollock, Gilliam, Catlett, and Mitchell. The world-class collections continue to draw international attention and allow the museum to play an innovative role in interdisciplinary exploration.

“Homecoming,” the inaugural exhibition, reintroduces visitors to the masterpieces that put Iowa on the map and debuts new acquisitions from underrepresented groups, including women and contemporary Black artists, that strengthen the collection. Comprised of a series of thematic installations, “Homecoming” will remain on view through July 2025. For more information and a full calendar of events, please visit the museum website. Admission to the Stanley is always free and open to all.
