Easy Access to Art: A Win-Win Proposition

The Museum Store provides accessibility to art for our customers. We carry art inspired by great artists and museum exhibitions for you to incorporate into your own home décor. In addition to artist-themed merchandise, the Museum Store provides art straight from the source. By arranging consignment agreements with various artists, the fabulous artwork that you love can literally go home with you (or you can start
wearing it immediately!)

The upcoming Maurice Sendak exhibition inspired the Museum Store to carry some “Wild Things” made from socks that may not brighten up a wall but a child’s face instead! Jean Lake makes whimsical and huggable monsters. New 2018 consignors include Veronica Starcevich’s collection of cuff bracelets that preserve the cultural Native American tradition of beaded loom work and Elizabeth Boggess‘ raku-fired tiny ceramic houses in three sizes and colors.

By becoming a consignor, the artist benefits by having an additional place for you to find his/her work and the Figge benefits by receiving a portion of the consignment proceeds. What a grand idea to take a stroll in the store after visiting a new exhibition or a favorite work of art—new discoveries always await you at the Figge Museum Store.

David Plowden's Iowa

David Plowden's Iowa is a capstone collection of Iowa photography from an American master. Proclaimed "an American treasure" by historian David McCullough, David Plowden has produced 20 books of photos and won many prestigious awards, including a Guggenheim Fellowship in 1967. His latest collection is curated from over four decades photographing Iowa, and offers a view that is nostalgic yet timeless. David Plowden's Iowa contains over 70 pages of photographs, along with an introductory essay by Rima Girnius, PhD, that masterfully interprets Plowden's Iowa photos and places them firmly within the context of his illustrious career. This book also includes a short biography as well as a conversation with Plowden about his work.

Grant Wood: An American Master Revealed

This companion catalogue for the exhibition of the same name was organized by the former Davenport Museum of Art. Richly illustrated with approximately sixty paintings, over two dozen drawings, lithographs and preparatory sketches by the artist it is a comprehensive visual overview of the artist’s body of work. Though Wood is thought of as the epitome of American Regionalism this book also explores Wood's modernist tendencies, the influence of primitive German and Flemish work and the artist’s study in Paris. The volume features a comprehensive examination of Wood’s working methods.  First published in 1995 it endures as one of the most complete visual reference of Wood’s paintings and an illuminating investigation of the artist.

Though it had gone out of print, this book has been reprinted by the museum. If your institution would like information on purchasing copies for resale please contact the museum at
