First Friday: January 2017

  • 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 work of local artists, and mingle with other art-enthusiasts.

This month Diego Lasansky will display five intaglio prints of different variations of his Junker Jörg, 1521. A painter and printmaker, Lasansky is the grandson of famed printmaker Mauricio Lasansky. He first learned about artistic processes from his grandfather and three of his uncles, all of whom were professional artists. He earned his BFA from the University of Iowa in 2016.  His work has already attracted local, national and international recognition. Lasansky’s most recent exhibition was “Diego Lasansky: A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man,” at the Cedar Rapids Museum of Art, Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

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
