The Mississippi River has always served as a muse for artists, songwriters and authors. “Old Man” River has been described as mighty, muddy and wicked, but the word spectacular describes both the river itself and the Muscatine Art Center’s collection of works depicting the river. The collection includes paintings, drawings, prints and maps which historically and aesthetically document the river and the communities built along its banks.

The Great River Road, which travels the length of both sides of the Mississippi River, is celebrating its 75th anniversary this year. The Muscatine Art Center exhibition will follow the Great River Road as part of the anniversary celebration. Highlights from the River Collection include a variety of works by Henry Lewis, an oil on pressed wood by Sally MacMillan, a painting by Muscatine’s own William Bunn, a lithograph by John Page, a view of “Bloomington” (Muscatine) by John Casper Wild, prints by Karl Bodmer, hand colored engravings by Herrmann Meyer and a pen and ink drawing by Rudolf Cronau.
