Online (registration required)

Join Lauren Lessing, the director of the University of Iowa Stanley Museum of Art, as she discusses the latest updates on projects and construction at the museum.

Prior to becoming director of the UI Stanley Museum of Art in July 2018, Lessing gained many years of experience working in art museums, including the Art Institute of Chicago, the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City, and the Colby College Museum of Art in Waterville, Maine.

A native Midwesterner, Lessing has curated exhibitions and authored many books, articles, and catalogue essays on various topics in American art. Over the past two years, she has shaped an ambitious vision for the UI Stanley Museum of Art, which includes a new mission to transform lives by connecting the University of Iowa community, Iowans, and the world with extraordinary works of art.

Rod Lehnertz (02MBA), the UI’s senior vice president of finance and operations, will host the online session.

Registration is required and space is limited for this online session.
