Hidden Powers: CT Scanning the Stanley's African Art Collection
Stanley Visual Classroom, Iowa Memorial Union, third floor
125 N. Madison St., Iowa City
Through a partnership with UI Hospitals and Clinics Department of Radiology, Stanley museum staff used computer tomography (CT) scanning technology to view the interior contents of more than a dozen objects from sub-Saharan Africa. Join Cory Gundlach, Curator of the Arts of Africa, Oceania, and the Americas, to explore the concealed dimensions of African art and how advanced technical analysis aids the interpretation of the Stanley Museum of Art permanent collection.
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.
