View Works from the Collection

The Stanley Museum of Art welcomes visiting scholars to research our collection. As you prepare for your visit, we recommend completing the request form as soon as possible.

This form is for independent researchers and members of the public. For class visits to view works, please use the above "Visit Request Form."

Object viewing request

Requests must be placed at least one month in advance to allow the registrarial team time to assess all requested objects, determine if they can safely be removed from storage for study, and prepare them for viewing. Visits are limited to normal museum hours and are dependent upon teaching, programming, and staff availability.

You can research our collection online through the Iowa Digital Library.


Please contact Sarah Luko, assistant registrar rights and reproductions, with questions.
