Meet our new logo!

The logo is a sleek amalgam of cultural patterns, symbolic collective hands, Iowa's landscape, and forward progress. This concept pops in full color and holds its power in black and white.

The Museum's new logo was funded by a generous grant from the Roy J. Carver Charitable Trust.
