About the University of Iowa Museum of Art

Due to the flood of 2008, the UIMA's former building was deemed unsuitable for the return of artwork. However, the UIMA collection was saved, and through the use of temporary facilities and creative outreach, the Museum continues to offer the invaluable experience of art to the University, the community, the state of Iowa, and beyond. While we await a new building, we invite you to visit our temporary locations:

Iowa Memorial Union, Third Floor

  • [email protected], room 376 (Richey Ballroom): On-campus visual classroom featuring an extensive installation from the museum’s permanent collection
  • Black Box Theater: On-campus space for UIMA special exhibitions, featuring Tea Time: Going Dutch (September 13–December 7, 2014)

Figge Art Museum, Davenport

  • Gallery space and storage for 12,000 objects from the UIMA’s permanent collection. Free admission to the Figge Art Museum for UI students, faculty, and staff with UI identification cards, and UIMA Members with their membership cards.
