Celebrating the Beauty of Central Iowa

McFarland Clinic Marshalltown constructed a new 66,000 square foot state-of-the art facility in Marshalltown. The $20 million facility allows for more comfortable and efficient use of space to provide patient care. With the help of the local community, the artwork in the facility celebrates the natural beauty of central Iowa found in nature’s colors, wildlife, landscape and iconic images of our area. In collaboration with Arts + Culture Alliance, we conducted a photography contest to showcase our community and provide an inspiring and healing environment. Over 700 photos were submitted and through a selection committee it was narrowed down to 26 photos that are now installed in the beautiful new facility.

The Alliance prioritizes and values partnering within our community to accomplish our mission. We know we can not do this work alone and it takes all of us. As stated in the recently adopted City of Marshalltown Arts & Culture Master Plan, we also know, cities that weave arts and culture into the fabric of daily life become a destination for visitors, drive economic prosperity and become regional focal points. But most importantly, they bloom into a springboard of imagination and a creative home for their own residents.

We invite you to go to the new building located at 421 East Merle Hibbs Blvd in Marshalltown to see all of the beautiful work of these very talented artists.
