The new home of the University of Iowa Stanley Museum of Art complements the museum’s collections with its design and composition.
Created as a timeless rectilinear structure, the building is punctuated by two outdoor terraces and a three-story lightwell.
The façade is composed of glass and brick masonry that has been treated with manganese for a luminous quality.
Opening Aug. 26, 2022, the Stanley’s inaugural exhibition, Homecoming, will reintroduce visitors to the museum’s extraordinary collection. That exhibition will be on view through July 2025.
Opening day activities extend into the evening, and we feel sure that future program will also include nighttime activities even though operating hours for the new museum have the building close at 5 p.m. On a university campus. We don’t get it.
