The Graduate Archive

For the past seventy-five years the School of Art and Art History has collected thousands of artworks by artists attending the School's graduate studio programs. Each graduate student was required to leave behind a work they completed during their graduate studies here at the University of Iowa. The collection contains over 6,000 paintings, prints, photographs, sculptures and other art objects. The collection is unique in the country and provides a critical glimpse of academic American art over much of the last century.

From Happy Islands—18 Images, Brownprint photography, 1982

Terri L. Warpinski earned an MA (1982) and MFA (1983) in Photography from the University of Iowa.

Brownprinting, or Van Dyke Brown Print, is a process dating back to 1842 that eliminates the need for a darkroom, and results in photographs that evoke feelings of  nostalgia, as is clear in this simple image of a clothes drying on a line, set in a landscape.
