University of Iowa Stanley Museum of Art

Show Contact Information +
The University of Iowa Stanley Museum of Art aspires to transform lives by connecting the University of Iowa community, Iowans and the world with extraordinary works of art. Founded in 1969, the museum now holds one of the nation's foremost university art collections, including artworks from around the world and in a range of media from paintings, sculptures and works on paper to textiles, metalwork and ceramics. In September 2022, the Stanley Museum of Art will open the doors of its new home—a sustainable, state of the art building designed by Rod Kruse of the Des Moines-based architectural firm BNIM. The beautiful new museum will sit adjacent to the University of Iowa Main Library and Gibson Square Park and will encompass spaces designed for experiential learning, performance and social events as well as elegant galleries for the display of art. [Listed address is for administrative offices only.] Before the new Stanley Museum of Art building opens, visitors can view selections from our world-class collection at the Figge Art Museum in Davenport, where visitors who present proof of Stanley Museum membership are also admitted free of charge. At the Figge Art Museum, you can see examples of the Stanley's world-renowned modern painting collection, including works by Marsden Hartley, Robert Motherwell, Stuart Davis, Sam Gilliam, Yayoi Kusama and Alma Thomas, among others. We invite you to visit us!
