The Stanley Museum of Art’s collection belongs to the State of Iowa, and we want you to have access to all of it. While only a small percentage of the full collection can be on view at any time, you can make a request to see a specific artwork during our public viewing hours. Space is limited.
Requests must be made at least one month in advance to allow time for the registrarial team to assess the object to determine whether it can safely be removed from storage for study and prepare it for viewing.
Scheduled viewing occurs on the second Saturday of each month from noon until 3:00 p.m.
In your request, please include the artists, titles, and accession numbers of the artworks you would like to see. You can search our collection in the Iowa Digital Library. Please limit your request to three artworks per visit.
