UI Art Museum Presents Works From Parisian Collection
IOWA CITY, Iowa - It’s too big for one venue, so a new exhibit on the University of Iowa campus will be presented in both the Old Capitol Museum and the Iowa Memorial Union.
The exhibit, “Napoléon and the Art of Propaganda,” features more than 120 drawings, prints, painting, sculptures, manuscripts, medals, and other objects. The exhibit opens Sept. 13 and continues through Jan. 29 in the Pentacrest Museums Gallery for Arts, Humanities, and Sciences in the Old Capitol Museum and in the Black Box Theater at the Iowa Memorial Union.
The UI Museum of Art, in partnership with UI Pentacrest Museums, is presenting the special exhibition. All the works are from the private collection of Pierre-Jean Chalençon, a renowned Napoleon expert whose collection now includes more than 500 objects and has been loaned to museums all over the world.
