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.

Installation view of The Mis-Education of the Black American, Intermedia, 2016

LaMar Barber earned an MFA in Intermedia from the University of Iowa in 2016.

The artist explains:

"As an interdisciplinary visual artist I work to reconcile the misconceptions of Black American culture by using popular cultural references in a visual art context to disentangle stereotypes from truth. I believe that visual art can have a powerful impact on dialogues of race and identity, which are increasingly global in nature."
