Museums from IA and WA Join!
The University of Iowa Museum of Art

University of Iowa Museum of Art
Iowa City, IA

After the June 2008 flooding of the UIMA's former Riverside Drive home, the building was deemed unsuitable for the return of artwork. However, the UIMA collection was saved, and through the use of temporary facilities and creative outreach, the Museum continues to offer the invaluable experience of art to the University, the community, the state of Iowa, and beyond. We invite you to visit our temporary locations.

Upcoming Exhibition:
  • Ere Ibeji: Yoruba Twin Figures from the Collection of J. Richard Simon
    • Sept. 2 - Oct. 17
    • Iowa Memorial Union’s Black Box Theater
