Art & Write Night
6:00 pm - 8:00 pm (CST)
Where: 39-53 East Jefferson Street, Iowa City, IA US 52240

Join the long, rich, historical tradition of artists creating in our spaces.

Professional, aspiring, and amateur artists alike, make our museum your muse. The return of this popular program series welcomes guests into the Museum of Natural History's magical gallery spaces after-hours to work on sketching or writing projects with other campus and community artists.

Tell a friend, grab a notebook, and join us on the first Friday of each month. We'll provide a new inspo prompt for each session and will sometimes move about the Museum but we'll always start in the Hageboeck Hall of Birds (Bird Hall) on the third Floor of Macbride Hall. Join anytime between 6-8 p.m. and feel free to participate in a themed creation challenge or work on your own project with our exhibits as inspiration. We'll save the last 15-30 minutes of each session to share what we've been working on, connecting with others (optional, of course!).


Please note, the Museum is typically closed during this time, meaning the main entrance to Iowa Hall (atop the large staircase outside on the east side of Macbride Hall) will be closed and locked. All other building doors will be open, offering access to the Ground Floor of Macbride Hall. Bird Hall is located on the third floor of Macbride Hall and can be reached by stairs or by taking the elevator to the third floor and crossing the auditorium to the north side of the building.

Big Ten Network (@BigTenNetwork) March 6, 2023 It was a historic moment for the Hawkeyes. Not only did Iowa tally its most points ever against a Big Ten opponent, it was the first time in program history that the Hawkeyes claimed back-to-back tournament titles. Photo: Brian Ray/hawkeyesports.com Clark, Monika Czinano, and Gabbie Marshall were named to the all-tournament team after the victory. Clark led Iowa with the first triple-double in tournament championship history?leading the Hawkeyes with 30 points, 17 assists, and 10 rebounds. Czinano added 26 points and seven rebounds in the win. Marshall ended the Big Ten Tournament on fire?hitting 27 of her past 44 3-point attempts. Iowa Enters NCAA Tournament as No. 2 Seed Photo: Brian Ray/hawkeyesports.com For the fifth time in school history, Iowa earned a No. 2 seed in the NCAA Tournament, and Hawkeye fans couldn?t wait to see their team in action two more times this season. That?s why, in just 53 minutes, tickets to the first- and second-round matchups sold out. Said Clark: ?I think maybe we?ve gotten kind of used to our fans being as incredible as they are. I think it just shows the excitement in our community about women?s basketball and that?s the excitement that it could be like all around the country.? Sweet Finish to Season at Carver Photo: Brian Ray/hawkeyesports.com After second-seeded Iowa opened the NCAA Tournament with a 95-43 victory over Southeastern Louisiana?scoring the second-most points in program history for an NCAA Tournament game?the Hawkeyes moved on to face a tough Georgia squad.

Iowa Women's Basketball (@IowaWBB) March 21, 2023 It?s been an emotional roller coaster for Jensen, who lost her father to pancreatic cancer on March 26. ?She is the epitome of an amazing person, amazing coach, so to see her go through that, it's obviously super tough, especially in one of the highs of all of our lives,? Czinano said. Iowa Takes Down Colorado, Advances to Elite Eight Photo: Brian Ray/hawkeyesports.com Despite trailing at halftime against a tough Colorado team, Iowa found its footing in the third quarter. The Hawkeyes outscored the Buffaloes, 25-13, to start the second half en route to an 87-77 victory in the Sweet 16. ?It started on defense for us,? said Clark, one of four Hawkeyes to reach double figures in the win. ?We were getting stops [in the third quarter], and that?s what leads to really good offense for us.?

Iowa Women's Basketball (@IowaWBB) March 25, 2023 While Iowa pushed the lead to double digits, Colorado?which gave up the most points it had all season?got within four points late in the fourth quarter. But Iowa was too much?as Czinano scored inside and the Hawkeyes made seven free throws in the final 60 seconds. Hawkeyes Survive, Advance to Final Four Photo: Brian Ray/hawkeyesports.com If Clark wasn?t National Player of the Year going into the Elite Eight, her performance against Louisville solidified her spot as the nation?s best player. Clark?tallying the first 40-point triple-double in NCAA Tournament history (41 points, 10 rebounds, 12 assists)?led the Iowa Hawkeyes to a 97-83 victory over the Louisville Cardinals and secured the program?s first Final Four berth since 1993.

(per @ESPNStatsInfo)? ESPN Women's Hoops (@ESPN_WomenHoop) March 27, 2023 After falling into an early 8-0 hole, Iowa?s starting five?playing their 90th straight game together?weren?t rattled. Clark was unstoppable to end the first quarter?scoring or assisting on every one of Iowa?s points as the Hawkeyes took a 25-21 lead after the first quarter. Leading 48-43 at halftime, Iowa took control by outscoring the Cardinals?who were making their fifth straight Elite Eight trip?by a 30-16 margin in the third quarter. It was a lethal combination of great offense, strong defense, and a partisan Hawkeye crowd that even the ESPN broadcast team noticed. ?This is ridiculous to have this kind of presence in Seattle,? said Rebecca Lobo, of Hawkeye fans traveling nearly 1,900 miles to cheer on their team. With the win over Louisville, Iowa reached the 30-win plateau for the first time in school history. Soak it all in. @LisaBluder x @goiowa #Hawkeyes pic.twitter.com/YmORyYmCLD? Iowa Women's Basketball (@IowaWBB) March 27, 2023 Clark Named National Player of the Year Photo: Brian Ray/hawkeyesports.com On March 29, Clark was named the recipient of the 2023 Naismith Trophy?the most prestigious individual basketball honor presented annually to women?s college basketball?s most outstanding player. ?Winning this award is a huge accomplishment,? Clark said. ?This is such a huge honor for our family and program. None of this would be possible without my tremendous support system. I want to thank Lisa Bluder and her staff for giving me the opportunity to play basketball at the University of Iowa. It is a place I have thrived in since I stepped on campus.? The following day, Clark was named Associated Press National Player of the Year. She?s the second Hawkeye?and Big Ten student-athlete?to earn this distinction. Iowa?s Megan Gustafson (19BBA) was the recipient of the national award in 2019. Caitlin Clark is a regular at @UIchildrens, spending time with any kiddo that requests a visit. This one, however, came with an extra surprise. Congrats to the 𝐀𝐏 𝐍𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐚𝐥 𝐏𝐥𝐚𝐲𝐞𝐫 𝐨𝐟 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐘𝐞𝐚𝐫, @CaitlinClark22! pic.twitter.com/1z2uGnScq6? Iowa Women's Basketball (@IowaWBB) March 30, 2023 Clark is one of three Hawkeye recipients of the Naismith Trophy since 2019, and the second women?s player. Gustafson was the 2019 honoree, while Luka Garza (21BBA) was chosen in 2021. Iowa is one of just six institutions to have both a men?s and women?s Naismith Trophy honoree (Duke, LSU, Notre Dame, Texas, and Virginia). Iowa Advances to Final, Ends South Carolina?s 42-Game Win Streak Photo: C. Guerra It had been 30 years since Iowa women?s basketball made its first Final Four. This time, the Hawkeyes had the last laugh. Clark scored 41 points and Iowa ousted defending national champion South Carolina, 77-73, in front of 19,288 at American Airlines Center in Dallas. According to ESPN, Clark is the first player in NCAA history with back-to-back 40-point games. ?I love me some Caitlin Clark,? Bluder said, whose team scored more points against South Carolina than any other opponent this season. ?We?ve been talking about being mission-focused a lot this year, and we had a game plan and these guys executed so well. That is South Carolina we just beat, folks. Amazing.? Iowa jumped on the Gamecocks?leading for most of the first half. An 8-0 run?capped off by a Kate Martin layup?gave the Hawkeyes a 46-37 lead. But South Carolina?who hadn?t lost in 359 days?trimmed the lead to just four points heading into the fourth quarter. After briefly losing the lead, Clark?s three-pointer with 8:55 left in the game put Iowa back in front, 62-60?a lead they would not relinquish. Clark either scored or assisted on all of Iowa?s 18 points in the fourth quarter?scoring the final 13. With the win, the Hawkeyes advanced to their first-ever national championship game and became the Big Ten?s first team to reach the title game in 18 years.
