| Free

Event Navigation

In conjunction with the exhibition Razzle-Dazzle: World War I Camouflage Ephemera, collection owner Roy Behrens will speak about the little known use of designers, architects and artists (including Iowan Grant Wood) as army, navy, and civilian camouflage experts (called camoufleurs) during World Wars I and II.

A noted scholar on the aesthetics and history of camouflage, Behrens is the author of numerous books and scholarly articles on the subject and has been described by Communication Arts magazine as “one of the most original thinkers in design.” His most recent book is Frank Lloyd Wright and Mason City: Architectural Heart of the Prairie.

This program is free. Attendees are invited to tour the Museum’s current exhibitions after the talk for no charge.

Sponsored by Humanities Iowa
