    Figge Art Museum, 2022, Nikos Frazier

    After 14 years, art pieces stored at the Figge Art Museum because of Iowa City flooding are going home.   Massive flooding destroyed parts of Iowa City in 2008, and about 12,000 pieces of art from the University of Iowa Stanley Museum of Art were moved to the Figge for safe keeping.   Having the additional space will allow the Figge to bring out some of its own permanent collection, Hargrave said, of which around only 3% is on display. The extra room will also allow for new partnerships, Hargrave said, such as the collaboration with the Arts Bridges Foundation...

    Lost at Sea Edouard Duval-Carrié

    On a certain level, being imaginative means producing things in the mind that exist independent of reality, including scenarios that are invented or fantastic. While there may still be connections to day-to-day reality, the scenes, sensations, or ideas within the imagination are fictional. Blurry Boundaries addresses these ambiguities, or the spaces between them, by sharing a wide range of works. While primarily drawn from RAM’s collection, the exhibition also spotlights loaned work from Wisconsin-based Yeonhee Cheong and Illinois-based Paul Andrew Wandless. Additionally, the loan of “Lost at Sea” by Edouard Duval-Carrié represents a newly formed partnership between RAM and Art...
