Building Community

UIMA@IMU Visual Classroom, Iowa Memorial Union, third floor
125 N. Madison Street, Iowa City

To mark our upcoming 50th anniversary (2019), the fall exhibition at the UIMA@IMU Visual Classroom celebrates outstanding examples of our collection. We highlight selections from the Elliott and Stanley collections of European and African art respectively, as well as other works recently entrusted to us as gifts and those purchased with strategic forethought during the museum’s early years. The exhibition also shares the vision and plans for the new building with the community that has nurtured us and that we serve.
