Whoopee Cushion Flask, 2013

Samantha Mitchell earned an MA in Jewelry and Metal Arts from the University of Iowa in 2013.

This object was selected from the Graduate Archive at the University of Iowa.  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.
