Davenport, Iowa (February 21, 2013) – The Figge Art Museum will again present an exhibition of current works by members of the University of Iowa Studio Art faculty beginning Saturday and running through May 5, 2013.

The University of Iowa Faculty Biennial exhibition is curated by UIMA Director Sean O’Harrow and includes graphic design, 3D design, sculpture, painting, printmaking, intermedia, ceramics, photography, jewelry and metalwork, drawing and multimedia.

The last biennial, which was hosted by the Figge in 2011, was popular with audiences, and this year’s show is guaranteed to be equally enticing. Participating faculty include: Hartmut Austen, Isabel Barbuzza, Anthony Castronovo, Peter Chanthanakone, Thomas Christison, Chunghi Choo, Ronald M. Cohen, Monica Correia, Brad Dicharry, John Dilg, David Dunlap, Laurel Farrin, Robert O.

The school’s studio arts program, which dates to the establishment of the Department of Graphic and Plastic Arts in 1910, is considered one of the best public offerings in the country and has hosted a number of famous artists on its list of faculty.

University of Iowa students, faculty, and staff receive free admission to the Figge with their UI ID cards; UIMA donors get in free with their Donor Courtesy Cards.

WEST BRANCH, IOWA— The National Park Service made available a draft Invasive Plant Management Plan and Environmental Assessment for public review. The plan addresses issues associated with vegetation management within the boundaries of 15 national parks in the Midwest, including Herbert Hoover National Historic Site in West Branch, Iowa. Particular attention was placed on eradication, control, and containment of invasive plants. The public is encouraged to review the plan and offer comments on the Planning, Environment and Public Comment website, http://parkplanning.nps.gov/projectHome.cfm?projectID=31771 by March 14, 2013.  Comments may also be mailed to:
Craig Young
c/o Wilson’s Creek National Battlefield
6424 West Farm Road 182
Republic, MO 65738
Three alternatives suggest differing strategies for exotic plant management. Scoping and early consultation provided a number of issues and concerns to be considered in an EA.
Craig Young, the Invasive Plant Management Team coordinator said, “Our Interdisciplinary Team, consisting of park managers and National Park Service subject matter experts, analyzed the potential for impacts on park resources and the human environment and drafted an Environmental Assessment detailing the impacts of management action.”
As part of the process, the National Park Service wants to ensure that it has considered all the concerns held by members of the public.
Herbert Hoover National Historic Site and the Herbert Hoover Presidential Library and Museum are in West Branch, Iowa at exit 254 off I-80. Both are open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Central Time. Parking is limited so please allow extra time to find a parking space. For more information go online at www.nps.gov/heho or call (319) 643-2541.
