German Iowa and the Global Midwest

Overview

On loan from the University of Iowa, the traveling exhibition “German Iowa and the Global Midwest” uses photos and artifacts to explain how German immigrants influenced everything from politics to beer. Drawing on extensive research, this exhibit explores both pro- and anti-immigration attitudes at a time of national emergency -- and how those attitudes linger today, when a third of Iowans still claim German heritage.
