The new University of Iowa Stanley Museum of Art building will replace the former UIMA building.  Though not destroyed by the 2008 flood, it was determined that art could no longer be displayed or insured in original building. The new plan calls for a three-story, 52,000 gross-square-foot building and will be located above the small parking lot near the UI Main Library, between Gibson Square park and the railroad tracks. The museum project is the final structural recovery on the UI campus in the aftermath of the devastating 2008 floods.

What's New: 

The late Richard (Dick) Stanley and Mary Jo Stanley, of Muscatine, Iowa, have committed $10 million to support the building campaign for the University of Iowa Museum of Art.

In August 2017, the Iowa Board of Regents gave final approval and authorization to proceed with construction of a new Museum of Art building.
