The Iowa Arts Show Up Spectacular!


presented with the Stanley Museum of Art

as part of the For Freedoms 50 State Initiative

Sunday, September 30th, 2018 at Noon

on the West Lawn of the Pentacrest (facing the Iowa River)

A participatory public art project in the form of a card stunt spelling out SHOW UP, bookended by absurd festivity including a recreation of Jimi Hendrix's Star-Spangled Banner by an amateur musician and the hoisting of an enormous pom-pom.

Each card in the card stunt will be a special edition civic-engagement-themed screenprint designed by local artist Mrs Carla Bryant (and including a link to a voter registration website) which all participants can keep to share or distribute, encouraging others to show up.

Join us to embody and visualize civic engagement and help distribute 1000 "get out the vote" posters!

We can't spell SHOW UP without YOU! Let us know you'll be there: RSVP here!
