COUNCIL BLUFFS HISTORY THROUGH ART:
The Works of Grant Wood and George Simons
Explore the artwork of George Simons and Grant Wood in the new exhibition Council Bluffs History Through Art. Both these artists, incredibly important to the history and culture of Council Bluffs, explore and showcase early landscapes of the region. However, the work produced by these two men varies widely in style, skill, and technique. Join us as we rediscover these significant pieces as part of our local history. The exhibition of these two bodies of work in the same gallery space is meant to showcase both artists as significant aspects of local history, facilitating pride in the community and providing a wonderful opportunity to educate area residents on the arts.
Thank you to Council Bluffs Public Library and the Dodge House for contributing pieces and supporting the development of this very special exhibition. Special thanks to our sponsor

The UNsculpture Project, led by PACE in partnership with the city of Council Bluffs and funded by Ted & Polly Hoff and the Iowa West Foundation, includes 10 UNsculptures throughout Council Bluffs to illustrate how Council Bluffs is "UNlike anywhere else. On purpose."
The UNsculptures live throughout the community marking "points of interest" in Council Bluffs.
In 2020, a special event will take place at the new Hoff Family Arts & Culture Center to auction off the sculptures, raising funds for youth scholarships for art camps and classes.
