What’s the museum got to do with sports? Come find out during Iowa’s bye week, and get your football (and art) fix at the Stanley. Our sports-themed works include John Pusey’s Football from 1935, a colored chalk drawing that captures the energy and excitement of game day that Hawkeye fans know well. Pusey was born in Council Bluffs, IA and worked with Grant Wood overseeing WPA artists in Stone City, IA.
Saturdays at the Stanley brings the museum’s collection to audiences in a casual, fun, and interactive atmosphere. Each event has a theme that looks at our artwork from a different perspective. Curators lead visitors through a selection of works, share stories about the artists and subject matter, and open the discussion up to the audience. We invite visitors of all ages to participate in these conversations and get (re)acquainted with our collection as we look forward to the opening of our new building!
2019-2020 Saturdays at the Stanley events are sponsored in part by Little Village.
