ICPC S.O.S. (Save Our Stuff!) June 9, 2017 in Homestead, IA
We have a great lineup planned for this year’s conference, including our keynote speaker, Jessica Peel-Austin. Jessica, Manager of Interpretation and Collections at Brucemore, who will be presenting “Brucemore’s Grant Wood Sleeping Porch: More than a Porch, More than a Painter.” In 2013, Brucemore began the process of conserving and re-interpreting its 1925 Grant Wood sleeping porch. Jessica’s presentation will follow the journey that Brucemore staff made – taking the porch from a fragile state at risk of loss to a stable, vivid example of the early work of Iowa’s most famous artist that illustrates how one family’s love of the arts helped a community to develop.
