Christian Petersen


Sculpting history

Visitors will get their first glimpse of the new Christian Petersen Art Museum in the renovated Morrill Hall on March 22. Events include a free open house (11 a.m. to 4 p.m.), tours of the art on campus collection and a ticketed evening reception. More information on the new museum and the kick-off activities are in the insert in this edition of Inside Iowa State. Christian Peterson, shown at work above on "The Gentle Doctor," sculpted at Iowa State from 1934 through 1955. He was the nation's first permanent campus artist-in-residence. Submitted photo.
