City of Iowa City

Upcoming Area Events

Downtown Gallery Walk
March 6, 5 - 8 PM


Many downtown businesses will be participating in the Spring Gallery Walk on March 6th, so make plans to come downtown and enjoy the amazing scenery in the businesses!  Iowa Artisans Gallery will feature well known local fiber artist and weaver, Jan Friedman, who passed a 40 year milestone as a weaver in 2014. Her resume shows an impressive list of tapestries being commissioned for healthcare and corporate settings over the years. She will show mostly smaller framed fiber collages, with a tapestry or two in the mix. 



University of Iowa Museum of Art

   The University of Iowa Museum of Art (UIMA) is dedicated to bringing art into the lives of people across Iowa. Despite losing the former museum building to the flood in 2008, the UIMA continues strive towards being ever present on the beautiful UI campus. In 2009, the Museum opened a on-campus space in the Iowa Memorial Union's third floor Richey Ballroom where over 250 works from the permanent collection are on display. Just around the corner in the IMU's Black Box Theater, the UIMA presents temporary exhibitions and related programming. Because of a lack of a physical building, events are hosted all around the Iowa City area. Click our logo to find one happening near you!
