Opening Reception
Thursday, January 22
5:00 - 7:00 p.m.
Hanson Humanities Gallery

Take a bite of the colorful and flavorful world of food that Iowans grew, prepared, and enjoyed during our state's early years. Through the stories of Iowa immigrants, migrants, and families, The Land Provides explores Iowa's rich culinary history, various agriculture techniques, and the people who brought the earth's bounty from farm and garden to table. Integral to life, food was flavored with tradition, spiced with new ingredients and techniques, and served with Iowa love.

Join us for a free, public reception, and taste some of Iowa's historic treats as we celebrate the opening of our new exhibit.
