Stanley Museum of Art K-12 Education

Stanley Museum of Art Docents and instructors lead interactive presentations of original works of art from around the globe. With funding from the University of Iowa Museum of Art Education Partners, the Stanley Museum of Art education department purchased these works of art for use in K-12 classrooms. With funding from the Stanley Museum of Art Education Partners, the museum’s Education Department purchased artworks specifically for exemplary, object-based learning during art, social studies, and language arts classes. Students can examine closely—and even handle—many of the objects.

Legacies for Iowa

The Legacies for Iowa project is a large-scale arts-sharing initiative that brings the extraordinary collections of the Stanley Museum of Art to communities across the state. Each object in our collections is a repository of our past and our present. As a cultural and educational institution, the Stanley Museum of Art has a responsibility not only to preserve these collective histories, but to create a legacy for the future of art in everyday life. With the generous support of the Matthew Bucksbaum family, the Stanley Museum of Art is empowered to do just that.
