The Iowa Connection

School of Art and Art History alumni—with BA, BFA, MA, MFA, and PhD degrees in Art History, 3D Design, Ceramics, Graphic Design, Jewelry and Metal Arts, Painting and Drawing, Photography, Printmaking, and Sculpture and Media—have been shaping the art world since before World War II. That's why we're a top-ten ranked public university art school.

Throughout Iowa, across the nation, and around the world, our graduates put their Iowa-born skills and knowledge to work as artists, scholars, educators, entrepreneurs, cultural-institution innovators, and well-rounded professionals in just about every field imaginable. 

These far-flung Hawkeyes support, encourage, and advocate for each other—that's the Iowa Connection. 

Hey, alumni! What are you up to these days?

Each month, we publish images of alumni artwork and spread the word about exhibitions, publications, promotions, and more. We'd love to brag about you!

Where'd everybody go?
