Sioux City Art Center preparing for 100th birthday exhibit


SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) - The Sioux City Art Center is gearing up for their one hundredth birthday, and has a celebration of mural-sized proportions planned.

"Mural," a piece of art by Jackson Pollock valued at about 150 million dollars, is traveling to the Sioux City Art Center.

The piece is currently at the prestigious Getty Art Museum in Los Angeles, where it was being restored.

"Mural" was originally housed in Iowa City, but was removed for restoration and cleaning after the flood.

Art Center officials say this is a landmark exhibit for the Art Center.

"We're going to see it here in Sioux City as it was when Jackson Pollock actually painted it. It'll be in that condition. It'll be brighter and cleaner, and just as exciting as it was when he finished it," Al Harris-Fernandez, Sioux City Art Center Director said.

The piece will be in Sioux City from July 12 of 2014 to April of 2015.
