Twenty Artists Coming to Twenty State Parks, Including Backbone

The Iowa DNR, the Iowa Arts Council and Iowa State University are teaming up to bring 20 artists to 20 state parks this summer. It’s for a project to celebrate next year’s State Park Centennial.

That’s Michael Morain from the Iowa Department of Cultural Affairs. The graduate student artists are from Iowa State University’s colleges of Design, Agriculture and Life Sciences and Liberal Arts and Sciences.

Morain says the parks chosen include all the various features available across the state.

Morain says the artists will be in the parks until this August and you are invited to check them out.

The featured artist at Backbone State Park is Kimberly Moss.
