There’s still time to tour the exhibition!  Here are a few candid photos that capture the energy and interest during the opening reception:


Curator Lenore Metrick-Chen engages the audience and describes why she selected these works to illustrate how artists in Iowa are actively pushing back and making work about race, immigration, identity, capitalism, consumerism, and patriotism. She is standing in front of works by Mitchell Squire and works by Donte’ K. Hayes and Taylor Yocom are also visible.


Visitors are captivated by Donte’ K. Hayes’ textured clay creations and prints.
