Iowa artist Frantzen to speak at ISU; new exhibition open


Fine-art lectures are not an everyday occurrence at the Debbie and Jerry Ivy College of Business at Iowa State, but an upcoming public art installation in the Gerdin Business Building will have everyone talking, including the artist herself. Iowa artist Rose Frantzen will talk about her recent studio and public works of art beginning at 4:30 p.m. on March 4 in the Kingland Hub, 1450 Gerdin Business Building on the Iowa State University campus. The event will offer an opportunity to hear about Frantzen’s artistic philosophy and process and to view updates on her new mural, which will be installed later this year in the Lynn A. and Diane Engh Anderson Family Gallery in the recently opened expansion to the Gerdin Business Building. This in-person event will have limited audience capacity and requires pre-registration. A new exhibition, “Perceptions of Identity: Paintings by Rose Frantzen,” is on view weekdays through July 30 at the Christian Petersen Art Museum in Morrill Hall at ISU.
