The Pat Clark Art Collection was presented to the Ellsworth College Foundation, the non-profit organization that supports Ellsworth Community College, in 1997 and arrived in Iowa Falls in 2003 by Pat Clark, native of Iowa Falls, Iowa. She dedicated the collection in memory of her brothers, Duane and Don Clark. Her mission was to provide Ellsworth students, residents of her hometown, and visitors with a "window on the international world of art." A rotating exhibition is housed in the historic Carnegie-Ellsworth building, a facility that is shared with the local historical society museum, the Iowa Falls Chamber Main Street organization, and the Iowa Falls Area Development Corporation.
Community Challenge!! We need your support!
The Pat Clark Art Collection will be one of the organizations who will be participating in Iowa Falls State Bank Community Challenge October 11, 2023-October 25, 2023. Donations $25 to $100 will be matched from the Iowa Falls State Bank up to $10,000. Funds from the challenge will go towards our Art in the Community project. The friend's board is working towards bringing Pat's vision to give everyone a "window on the international world of art" into businesses and schools in the area. To do this we will need to have special display cases to protect the art from damage, UV rays, and any accidental incidents. We want to preserve the art for many years to come. If you are willing to donate to our community challenge and have your donation, be matched, please send gifts to either the Iowa Falls State Bank or Ellsworth College Foundation along with a donation form which can be printed here.
