Today, the University of Iowa will hold a meeting to discuss plans for what is left of the old Art Building, which was built in 1936. The meeting will be held in 2520D University Capitol Center.

According to the official memorandum of agreement among the State Historical Society, the Federal Emergency Management Agency, and the UI, opfficials decided that the Art Building was eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places, making the original building from 1936 exempt from demolition.

Since the 2008 flood, it has not served much if any function for the UI or the public.

At the meeting today, UI officials and INVISION Architecture representatives will answer questions from the public about the repurposing the building, said Wendy Moorehead, the strategic communications manager for UI Facilities Management.

Pertinent information, such as photos of the original building, flood maps, and drawings, will be available for viewing.

The meeting will be an opportunity for interested community members to provide input and submit comments for the potential reuse of the Art Building, Moorehead said.
