Jackson Pollock's Mural Restored, Returning to Iowa


By Ellen Kurt

IOWA CITY, Iowa - Iowa's most famous painting is returning to the Hawkeye state.

Jackson Pollock's Mural spent two years in Los Angeles for restoration.
The University of Iowa said the painting will be displayed at the Sioux City Art Center beginning in June.

It was at the University of Iowa Museum of Art until the 2008 flood. After that, the museum transported it to other museums for display.

The Pollock exhibit at the Sioux City Art Center is part of the UI Museum of Art's collections-sharing project.
