Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack listens to Iowa State University Integrated Studio Arts lecturer Jennifer Drinkwater in her Morrill Hall interactive studio project, 'Working Over Wood: Recomposing the Grant Wood Murals.' Visitors can recompose the nine-panel 1934 Grant Wood mural, 'When Tillage Begins, Other Arts Follow,' by positioning painted magnetic pieces in a metal panel, reflecting their own interpretations at the 2012 Smithsonian Folklife Festival, on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. on Friday, June 29, 2012. The University says, “Iowa State’s folklife festival exhibit highlights the central role of design in the land-grant mission, and extension’s past, present and the future impact on communities. It demonstrates a unique partnership between the College of Design and Extension and Outreach in applying creative problem solving society’s complex challenges. The exhibit, “Transforming Communities: Design in Action,” is inspired by Abraham Lincoln’s 1862 national call to “think anew and act anew” to solve the monumental challenges of the era that spawned the Morrill Act. It features examples of the university's completed and ongoing projects in Iowa communities, touch screen workstations with games for children and adults, and interactive activities with Iowa State faculty and staff.” One of the three themes this year is “Campus and Community.” It celebrates the 150 years of the USDA and the Land-Grant University System. The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the Land-Grant system extend education across the country, contributing to American agriculture success and rural prosperity. “Campus and Community” has demonstrations, discussions, hands-on activities, and entertainment to that showcase the many ways that this partnership works to improve American agriculture and rural life.
