Two-dimensional prints and drawings that precede, change, and follow complex three-dimensional sculptures and installations allow for an investigation of the processes and relationships between an initial concept, its planning, and a final product. This exhibition presents sculpture in combination with two-dimensional examples of how artists develop their ideas, using a variety of materials and mediums. While some works give visual form to the technical nature of a final product, others explore the conceptualization of an object or installation.

 This exhibition was curated by Sarika Sugla, MFA, and was organized by Legacies for Iowa: A University of Iowa Museum of Art Collections-Sharing Project, supported by the Matthew Bucksbaum Family.
