Note cards depicting artwork are currently available
at UI Museum of Art
IOWA CITY, Iowa -- Five paintings from the University
of Iowa Museum of Art's permanent collection have been reproduced on note
cards that are now available at the museum gift shop, located in the front
lobby of the museum.
Marlene Stanford, a museum volunteer who was essential
in the development of the note cards, said, "This project was long overdue.
Many people visit the UI Museum or Art and want to take something home with
them to remind them of their trip, or to share their experience with others.
These cards serve as the perfect memento."
The set of 15 cards, 5 x 7 inches in size, contains five
images of oil paintings from the museum's collection. Cost for the set is
$13. Paintings in the set are Stuart Davis' "New York--Paris, No.1," 1931;
Lyonel Feininger's "In a Village Near Paris (Street in Paris, Pink Sky),"
1909; Philip Guston's "Edge," 1960; Marsden Hartley's "E," 1915; and Jackson
Pollock's "Portrait of H.M.," 1945.
The UI Museum of Art has one of the finest collections
of modern paintings in a university museum. The museum showcases art treasures
from around the world and houses a permanent collection of more than 10,000
works of art spanning much of the history of art. Of particular distinction
are the museum's major collections of modern European and American painting,
graphic arts, African sculpture and decorative arts.
