The UIMA Education Department organizes a wide range of programs for audiences of all ages. Each event serves to further our mission of bringing the experience of art to the greatest range of audiences possible.

UIMA K–12 School Programs
UIMA Education staff members provide several school programs for K-12 students. Since the 2008 flood closed the former Museum building on Riverside Drive and made school field trips to visit the Museum impossible, the UIMA has modified many of its educational programs. In particular, the K-12 programs "Widen Our World" (WOW) and "Discover Africa" now travel to the schools, and the "K-12 School Programs Collections."
In addition to its outreach programs, the Museum continues to offer special exhibition-related events such as artists' talks and lectures. Visit Events & Programs to learn about upcoming educational events.
Tours are also available at the Figge Art Museum in Davenport, where many of the UIMA's works are on display. Contact the Figge at (563) 326-7804 for more information or go online to www.figgeart.org.
