To celebrate Earth Observation Day, the ISU GIS Facility will be offering a hands-on demo of the Iowa Geographic Map Server presented by Gregg Hadish, a staff member of the ISU GIS Facility and Iowa NRCS. The Iowa Geographic Map Server is a browser-based website that hosts statewide Iowa imagery. It is one of the most robust, publicly available, spatial imagery datasets in the country. The presentation will highlight recent innovations to the map server including an updated interface as well as many new features and image services. Come learn how to incorporate this valuable Iowa resource into your research.
Please RSVP email@example.com as computer space is limited.

This lecture will address some of the ways that logistics impacts the built environment and the ways that it might be engaged through design. Jesse LeCavalier will present aspects of his book, The Rule of Logistics: Walmart and the Architecture of Fulfillment (University of Minnesota Press, 2016), as well as recent contributions to the Seoul Biennale for Architecture and Urbanism and to the MoMA PS1 Young Architects Program.
LeCavalier is an associate professor of architecture at the New Jersey Institute of Technology and the Daniel Rose Visiting Assistant Professor at the Yale School of Architecture. He was the recipient of the 2015 New Faculty Teaching Award from the Association of the Collegiate Schools of Architecture (ACSA) and the 2010-11 Sanders Fellow at the University of Michigan. His work has appeared in Cabinet, Public Culture, Places, Art Papers and Harvard Design Magazine and his essay, “The Restlessness of Objects,” was the recipient of a 2013 Core77 Design Award. LeCavalier’s installation “Architectures of Fulfillment” was part of the 2017 Seoul Biennale for Architecture and Urbanism. His project “Shelf Life” was one of five finalists for the 2018 MoMA PS1 Young Architects Program.
Season 9: San Francisco Bay Area
Featuring Artists: Creative Growth, Lynn Hershman Leeson, Katy Grannan, Stephanie Syjuco
One hour episode, with discussion following – snacks provided!
Sponsored by the College of Design Art Club (CODAC)
Mitch Versteeg and an ISU Apple student representative will give two workshops focusing on basic Mac OS usage (navigation, features, tips/tricks, etc.) and also basic data on backup options, with Q&A time.
Verena Paepcke-Hjeltness, assistant professor of industrial design, will demonstrate the essentials of Sketchnoting, a pattern-based notetaking strategy that actively engages learners. Participants will learn the basics of Sketchnoting, start building their own simple image libraries and discuss ways to implement low-fidelity visual maps of what they see, hear and think. You will leave these sessions with concrete ways to break linear-thinking barriers for yourself and students.
This is a three-part series that meets from 12:10 to 1:30 p.m. Thursdays, Oct. 4, Oct. 11 and Oct. 18. The third session will be an open work day/practice session. Participants should be faculty, staff and graduate teaching assistants. Register online through Learn@ISU. See instructions.
A public reception in conjunction with the Studies in Creativity Student Exhibit and Catherine Reinhart’s polYESter Exhibit in the Pioneer Room of the Memorial Union. The juror for the Studies in Creativity Exhibit, Emily Kessinger, will give brief comments and announce the award winners at 6:15 p.m.
Public reception for polYESter exhibition by Catherine Reinhart (BFA 2008 Integrated Studio Arts), gallery manager and artist-in-residence at the ISU Design on Main Gallery. The exhibition is on display through Monday, Nov. 12, in the Pioneer Room at the Iowa State Memorial Union.
Reinhart makes fiber art with discarded textiles to create works dealing with themes of redemption, connection and care. In this body of work, she has disassembled a discarded polyester quilt into squares or blocks that are reinterpreted through string “sketches.” She explains, “Through the use of found textiles, I communicate the power of the economies of care I have labored in, child rearing and home care for the elderly and disabled. These economies of care run on simple and repetitive acts which provide comfort, ease suffering and connect us with each other. Similarly, my work is created using the ritual, repetitive actions inherent in many textile — stacking, sorting, washing and pilling.”
Reinhart believes that textiles make an effective bridge to the audience because of the prevalence of cloth in our lives. “They reference the domestic sphere, which is inherently social and familiar. My work joins conversation in the contemporary art world about the role and value of the domestic sphere. Using discarded textiles and the ritual actions, I honor the homeward-oriented life.”
Black Contemporary is extremely pleased to announce the 2nd exhibition and workshop participants Los Angeles artist Mike Nesbit and Omaha artist Thomas Prinz in collaboration with Cameron Campbell and Peter P. Goché. This exhibition/workshop will explore material and immaterial practices specific to drawing as a fundamental means of knowing and occupying the post-industrial context of Iowa’s agricultural scene. Experimental drawing assemblies will be developed in situ to amplify the nature of experimentation in the production of atmosphere through diverse practices and ethics. Funding for this project has been provided by RE3 Development, IIDA, ISU College of Design and the Design Studies 102 Lecture Fund.
American landscape tourism has changed dramatically due to changes in transportation, wealth, politics, and perhaps most important, expectations. What started as a month-long sojourn for the elite became a day- or week-long expectation for all classes. In his presentation, Hans Klein-Hewitt, a new assistant professor of landscape architecture, will focus on the changing nature of landscape tourism, with a focus on how tourist destinations struggle to keep up with national trends.
Klein-Hewitt’s presentation is part of the Friday Research Seminar Series sponsored by the Institute for Design Research and Outreach. All are welcome to attend this brown-bag session. Cookies will be provided.
