National Center for Midwest Art and Design

The National Center for Midwest Art and Design, known as NCMAD, is based at the Figge Art Museum in Davenport, Iowa. NCMAD's purpose is to promote the study and appreciation of 19th and 20th century Midwest artists, designers, and architects from the Midwestern United States (Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota, and Wisconsin). NCMAD scholars and visitors have access to the Figge's extensive collection of original works by a number of significant Midwesterners, such as Grant Wood, Thomas Hart Benton, John Steuart Curry, Marvin Cone, John Bloom, and Frank Lloyd Wright.  NCMAD hosts the Grant Wood Estate & Archive and the New Bauhaus Archive project.
