'Thursdays at Figge' talk set for Sept. 10

Nathan Popp, University of Iowa Museum of Art (UIMA) graduate curatorial assistant, will present a "Thursdays at the Figge" art talk on Marsden Hartley at 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 10, at the Figge Art Museum, 225 W. Second St., in Davenport.

Hartley, a German Expressionist artist, used a unique visual language to represent elements of World War I German military pageantry in his work and employed what he called 'intuitive abstraction' to express personal grief. His work "E" is included in the UIMA's current exhibition at the Figge, "A Legacy for Iowa: Pollock's 'Mural' and Modern Masterworks at the University of Iowa Museum of Art," on display through Dec. 31.

Admission to the Figge is free for UI students, faculty and staff who present their UI ID cards, UIMA donors who present their donor courtesy card and Figge Art Museum members. The general public is also welcome at the event for regular Figge admission prices: $7 for adults, $6 for seniors and students and $4 for children ages 3-12.
