Join the University Museums in celebrating one of our greatest alumni, George Washington Carver, through the artwork he has inspired on campus. For nearly seventy years, artists from Christian Petersen to Rose Frantzen have been inspired by Carver to create art that captures the spirit of mentorship, discovery, and invention. Their art adds to the legacy of this great man and to the inspiring aesthetic of his alma mater.
Come provide your thoughts about the project and welcome the artist to the ISU campus. Light refreshments will be served. Free and open to the public. Parking available in the Memorial Union ramp for a nominal fee.
