Stanley Museum of Art

The Stanley Museum of Art aspires to transform lives by connecting the UI 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 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.
