First Friday: February 2020

  • 5:00 PM–7:00 PM

FilmScene on the Ped Mall
118 E. College Street, Iowa City

Join us for Happy Hour + Art at the next Stanley Museum of Art First Friday reception at FilmScene on the Ped Mall!

February First Friday honors Iowa electoral tradition and welcomes artist-neighbors to jockey and jostle for a place within a pop-up exhibition. Five pre-registered artists will serve as “precinct captains” and will anchor the community pop-up exhibition. Local artists (residing within 50 miles of Iowa City) are invited to bring a single work of political art to display. First Friday friends, come vote for the art grouping that aligns most with your political sensibilities! 

Stanley First Fridays provide an ideal chance to usher in your weekend, enjoy the work of local artists, and mingle with other art enthusiasts. Events are free and open to all with complimentary popcorn and a cash bar.

Consider becoming a Stanley member! Courtesies include home delivery of the Stanley Museum of Art 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.

Cost: Free and open to all
