The UI is home to Intermedia, one of the first MFA programs in the world to encourage students to work across disciplines and media and with new technologies. This program began in the 1970s and drew upon resources emerging across campus that explored the legacy of Dada and Surrealism in post-war art. Also since the '70s, the Stanley Museum of Art has had a longstanding, collaborative relationship with UI Special Collections, which is home to the International Dada Archives and the Alternative Traditions in Contemporary Art Collections. This relationship has yielded major exhibitions, publications, and cooperative acquisitions, such as the recent acquisition of the Lil Picard estate. Within the Stanley Museum of Art collection, post-70s art includes significant paintings by Fairfield Porter, Lucas Samaras, Luis Cruz Azaceta, Horst Antes, Kazys Varnelis, and UI alumna Miriam Schapiro and Ellen Lanyon. Highlights of the contemporary sculpture collection include works by George Rickey, Beverly Pepper, Robert Arneson, Chunghi Choo, Lila Katzen, Damien Hirst, Charles Ray, El Anatsui, and Hans Breder.
