Art & Write Night

March 4 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every month that begins at 6:00 pm on day First of the month, repeating until June 3, 2022

Join the long, rich, historical tradition of artists creating in our spaces.
Professional, aspiring, and amateur artists alike, make our museum your muse. The return of this popular program series welcomes guests into the Museum of Natural History’s magical gallery spaces after-hours to work on sketching or writing projects with other campus and community artists.
Tell a friend, grab a notebook, and join us on the first Friday of each month. We’ll provide a new inspo prompt for each session and will sometimes move about the Museum but we’ll always start in the Hageboeck Hall of Birds (Bird Hall) on the 3rd Floor of Macbride Hall.
Join anytime between 6-8pm and feel free to participate in a themed creation challenge or work on your own project with our exhibits as inspiration. We’ll save the last 15-30 minutes of each session to share what we’ve been working on, connecting with others (optional, of course!).
Please note, the Museum is typically closed during this time meaning the main entrance to Iowa Hall (atop the large, iconic staircase outside on the east side of Macbride Hall) will be closed and locked. All other building doors will be open, offering access to the Ground Floor of Macbride Hall. Bird Hall is located on the 3rd Floor of Macbride Hall and can be reached by stairs or by taking the elevator to the 3rd Floor and crossing the auditorium to the north side of the building.

Experience Mi Casa, Your Casa 2.0 in Iowa CityJune 10 - July 10th

The Mi Casa, Your Casa 2.0 red frames, each in the shape of a small house, set alongside one another will be placed in three main areas of the pedestrian mall. Inside each “casa”, there is a swing and a ring of lights lining the bottom. When the house is empty, the lights glow dimly to welcome the next visitor. Once someone steps inside, the lights release a more powerful glow, indicating that someone is home.
