Saturdays at the Stanley: Cat People Art @ Stanley Visual Classroom, Iowa Memorial Union, third floor
Dec 7 @ 2:00 pm

The internet may have fueled our collective cat-craziness, but it didn’t start it. Edouard Manet, for example, drew a cat on a balcony smelling potted flowers, and Tsugouharu Foujita drew his self-portrait many times with his beloved cat resting its head on his shoulder or sitting on him. See how cats have captivated artists for over a hundred years.

Saturdays at the Stanley brings the museum’s collection to audiences in a casual, fun, and interactive atmosphere. Each event has a theme that looks at our artwork from a different perspective. Curators lead visitors through a selection of works, share stories about the artists and subject matter, and open the discussion up to the audience. We invite visitors of all ages to participate in these conversations and get (re)acquainted with our collection as we look forward to the opening of our new building!

2019-2020 Saturdays at the Stanley events are sponsored in part by Little Village.

Legends & Folklore of Winter with Chad Lewis @ Legends & Folklore of Winter with Chad Lewis
Dec 13 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

As Dickens wrote, the ghosts of Christmas are really the past, present and future, swirling around us in the dead of the year. They’re a reminder that we’re all haunted, all the time, by good ghosts and bad, and that they all have something to tell us. Winter may seem like a quiet time, but it is actually filled with bizarre tales and stories of cannibalistic spirits, Krampus the anti-Santa Claus, stories of little people, werewolves, witches, people being buried alive, and numerous other Holiday traditions for the darkest days of the year. Sip a cup of cocoa or cider and join us for chilling and mysterious folklore perfect for this time of year, sponsored in part by the Hiawatha Public Library.
