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 Stephanie Knutson, and mingle with other art-enthusiasts.

Stephanie Knutson is an artist who primarily works in portrait photography. Knutson studied Photo Journalism at Kirkwood under Helen Grunewald and is the owner of a commercial photo studio specializing in Weddings and Boudoir.  Knutson's work is being shown in conjunction with FlyOver Fashion Fest, a two-day fashion, music and ideas festival in downtown Iowa City.

Knutson was born and raised in a rural agricultural community. Her early life has inspired her fascination of people from all walks of life engaged in their routine. Social and economic themes can be seen throughout Knutson’s work. 

Knutson has several collections of street style fashion from the Soundset Festival and 80/35 Music Festival. She also uses her blog as a platform to spotlight local individual’s personal stories and portraits.

Stephanie Knutson currently lives and works in the Iowa City area.

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