The University of Iowa Pentacrest Lawn
To accompany the new exhibition Then & Now: 175 Years on the Pentacrest, the University of Iowa Pentacrest Museums will offer conjunctional educational programming throughout the year to further explore each of the six areas highlighted in the exhibit. This programming will be presented virtually through the museum’s ongoing series Exhibition Spotlight.
The first event in the Exhibition Spotlight series dedicated to our latest exhibit, Then & Now: 175 Years on the Pentacrest will explore the Pentacrest and natural spaces through historical and cultural lenses, examining the evolution of campus landscaping, trees and green spaces, ecological diversity, health and wellness, and community/campus connections.
Moderated by the Pentacrest Museums director of education and engagement, Carolina Kaufman, the discussion will feature UI urban forestry supervisor and campus arborist Andrew Dahl, The Outdoor Adventurer’s Guide to Forest Bathing author, physician, and UI alumna Suzanne Hackenmiller, UI Human Resources senior director of UI Wellness Megan Hammes, and ancestral farming manager Luke Kapayou of the Meskwaki Food Sovereignty Initiative.

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.
