Graceland University Professor of Art Julia Franklin, MFA, recently attended the Iowa Arts Summit and sessions on how to navigate the grant process of the National Endowment of the Arts (NEA) and how to pitch artwork for publication. According to its website, the summit included dynamic breakout sessions featuring presentations by leading state and national voices in the arts and brought together artists, filmmakers and entrepreneurs, nonprofit professionals and community leaders for a day of networking, learning and celebrating the arts in Iowa.

Franklin also presented an artist talk at the Let’s Center for Healing and Creativity in Washington, Iowa, Oct. 5 and gave a talk on National Coming Out Day at the Des Moines Social Club before the Iowa Stage production of “Fun Home: The Musical” Oct. 11.

Additionally, Franklin has two new artworks on view at the Des Moines Public Library Central Campus as part of the exhibition, “Serenity and Chaos,” which runs through the end of November, and her piece, “Unfolding Heritage,” was included in an alumni exhibition at the Fain Fine Arts Center at Midwestern State University in Wichita Falls, Texas, Oct. 9.
