Location: Brunnier Art Museum
Description: Welcome reception sponsored by University Museums to celebrate the Faces of Iowa State exhibition’s premiere. Open to all faculty, staff, and students, this is an opportunity to greet colleagues and network while also celebrating the opening of the new portrait exhibition.
Iowa artist Rose Frantzen was commissioned to paint portraits of important and impactful Iowa State University alumnae, faculty, staff, donors and friends live during the course of the Iowa State Fair in 2016 and during her March 29-April 6, 2017 residency at the Christian Petersen Art Museum. All portrait sessions were open to the public to watch. The entire group of portraits will make up the Faces of Iowa State touring exhibition which will launch at the Brunnier Art Museum in August 2017 and will continue to sites throughout the state of Iowa in 2018.
