First Friday: December 2016

  • 5:00 PM–7:00 PM

118 E. College St., Iowa City

Party for art at the next University of Iowa Museum of Art (UIMA) First Friday reception at FilmScene! UIMA First Fridays provide an ideal chance to usher in your weekend, enjoy the artwork of Barry Phipps and Cheryl Jacobsen, and mingle with other art-enthusiasts.

To label Barry Phipps “just a photographer,” or Cheryl Jacobsen “just a calligrapher,” does both a great disservice.  They are both multi-talented artists, using varied materials and techniques to create very HOT art! Come in from the cold and see hot art from Hudson River Gallery, as chosen by Nick Hotek. Select pieces will be available for purchase during the show.

First Fridays are free and open to the public with complimentary popcorn and a cash bar.

Consider becoming a UIMA member! Courtesies include home delivery of the UIMA Magazine and a personalized Membership Card, which entitles you to free entry to the Figge Art Museum and reciprocal admission to other art museums around the country.

First Fridays for the 2016-2017 season are generously sponsored by Robert & Karlen Fellows, H. Dee & Myrene Hoover, John & Patricia Koza, and John Menninger.

Cost: Free
