Held in conjunction with the museum's exhibit Power & Piety: Spanish Colonial Art from the Patricia Phelps De Cisneros Collection, the Figge will host a special lecture with Dr. Monica Dominguez Torres, an associate professor and director of Undergraduate Studies, and the director of Latin American and Iberian Studies, at the University of Delaware.

Presented in conjunction with its current exhibition Celebrating Day of the Dead, on display through December 17, the Figge will treat visitors to October 29's Day of the Dead Family Fiesta, an all-ages celebration of the Mexican holiday boasting live performances and hands-on art activities.

Two exhibitions by one gifted artist will soon be on display at St. Ambrose, with paintings, textiles, installations, and more by the Iowa-based Greta Songe viewable in the Catich and Morrissey Galleries, both located in the university's Galvin Fine Arts Center.

The culmination of a two-month art project will finally be displayed on October 29, when the crocheted results of fiber artist and sculptor Carol Hummel's community-wide #YarnBombQC are unveiled in a public ceremony at the Augustana Teaching Museum of Art.

For its final exhibition in the 2017 Arts @ the Airport gallery series, Quad City Arts presents works by a trio of Midwestern artists: landscape paintings by Annawan's Broadbent and Rockford's Gates, and ceramic sculpture by West Des Moines' Lewis.

Artworks by a pair of Iowans will soon be on display in Illinois, as Rock Island's Quad City Arts Center hosts exhibitions of photography by Bettendorf native Mike Leinhauser and mixed-media collages by Kathy Svec of Ames.

Numerous works by Augustana College professor Xiao, many never before shown to the public, will be on display in a new exhibition partly inspired by an 18th Century Samuel Johnson quote: “Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor widsom, in the grave, wither thou goest.”

Drawn from the Colección Patricia Phelps de Cisneros and co-organized by New York's Museum of Biblical Art and Virginia's Art Services International, the Figge's latest exhibition boasts 56 objects ranging from paintings to silver candlesticks to bishop’s chairs, made in the Spanish and Portuguese colonies of the Americas from the late-17th to the early-19th Centuries.

Images by Sara Slee Brown that take viewers one step out of reality will be displayed from October 13 through November 25, allowing MidCoast Gallery at Bucktown visitors a wholly original perspective on diners, phone booths, and other seemingly blasé elements of daily life.

Boasting more than 40 paintings produced over the course of 70 years, the Figge's latest exhibition will showcase the artistic journey of Rock Island native Koen – one of the most distinguished artists of the 20th Century.
