For the past eight years, students enrolled in art history and studio arts courses explored the holdings of the John Martin Rare Book Room. Here, they pored over weeping welts, ballooning wombs, and plants tantalizingly teetering between poisonous and medicinal. Here, aspiring medical professionals found an invitation into art historical thinking. Similarly, burgeoning artists found inspiration in the precision of anatomical representation achieved centuries ago, and budding historians wonde...

Islands are imbued with powerful myths; they combine materiality and metaphor and offer spaces that appear at once open and closed, fixed and fluid, defenseless and resilient, seductive and da...

Join us for a studio visit with Grant Wood Fellow Johnathan Payne to see some of his current work and hear about his practice. Payne’s most recent body of work is a rigorous engagement of collage, embroidery, and color painting processes. Using shredded paper, he weaves and adheres the material onto itself to construct intricately gridded substrates that are primed and painted several times over. Unconventional and idiosyncratic in nature, Payne’s works defy categorical definition. Join us ...
