Iowa City Art

Considering Iowa City is a town chock-full of liberal arts college students (most engineers go to Iowa State), the town features a wide array of artful forms of expression, art works, and places to enjoy artistic entertainment. The UI Museum of Art has in the past an excellent example of a standing place to enjoy artwork from the University of Iowa, but floodwaters have closed it for the time being. There are still places to purchase art in Iowa City, for example the Chait Gallery downtown. Or you could check out picture framing at the great frameup. No matter what, there will always be a panoply of places to enjoy art in the Iowa City area.

If you're bored, you can always see a couple of unique pieces along the ped mall downtown. This is where the library is located (which is an excellent resource for art books), and there are a number of unique places along this area as well. Plus, you can see some static art pieces that are not moved, but are enjoyable. You can also check out local Iowa City art online.
