Dale Fisher, UIMA Curator of Education, Sharing Art Experiences with Maquoketa

Monday, April 30, 2012

Dale Fisher, from the University of Iowa Art Department, delivered a presentation explaining ways that Maquoketa Art Experience is partnering with UI to share UIMA works of art with Maquoketans. Dale showed and discussed the history and culture of different African and Graphic Novel pieces throughout his presentation. The audience and Dale interacted through a question-response format, and the audience expressed a strong interest in UI’s artifacts and their steps in partnering with MAE.
Maquoketa students engaged in the UIMA School Programs during this same week (April 30-May 7) at Maquoketa Art Experience. The school programs, as well as this event, were open to the public so that we could all learn more about art, history, and culture and UI’s mission to foster education in these areas.
