There are more than 3.1 million people in the state of Iowa, and each one of them owns world-class masterpieces by the likes of Jackson Pollock, Pablo Picasso, and Henri Matisse, as well as ancient artifacts from across the globe.
That’s because the University of Iowa Stanley Museum of Art belongs to all Iowans—from the farmer in Crawford County and the professor in Winneshiek County to the elementary student in Sioux County and the nurse in Cedar County. They all have a stake in the more than 15,000 objects that comprise our top university art collection, and they all can say, “The Stanley Museum of Art is my museum.” Together, we have the chance to explore the “best human experience and activity.”
