The University of Iowa University of Iowa

Clearly, the exhibition Lil Picard and Counterculture New York, as well as this short essay and even the Picard website, serve merely to introduce or reintroduce Lil Picard into the narrative of her time. The University of Iowa extends an open invitation to students looking for a dissertation subject, to curious scholars, or to that special writer out there looking for the next subject of a book.
