A young Amy Worthen
AMY N. WORTHEN:
THE WORLD IN PERSPECTIVE | PRINTS AND DRAWINGS
This exhibition is an opportunity to explore and celebrate the artist Amy Worthen and her impact on the cultural landscape of Iowa and abroad. 

From her collection of almost 300 prints, Worthen has generously lent about 110 prints, 10 sketchbooks, and several printing plates for the exhibition, along with 26 prints already held in the University Museums permanent collection and a few select loans. Also on exhibit are several rare books from the 17 th  and 18 th  centuries, borrowed from Special Collections at the Iowa State University Library, chosen by the artist to depict the great influence that her studies into the history of printmaking have had upon her artistic and curatorial career.
