In a downtown full of mostly early 20th Century buildings, the Figge’s modernist building stands out. Fortunately the collection is nearly as bold and accessible as the building. Making lemonade out of lemons, the museum currently houses the University of Iowa’s relocated art collection, forced to move due to a 2008 flood. Just do not plan to grab a bite to eat as the restaurant space is dark. In case you are not listening to the guide, start at the top floor and work down.
