40th AnniversaryIowa State University Horticulture students, staff and alumni transformed the Brunnier Art Museum for the museum’s 40th Anniversary celebration.

Eight students teamed up with alum Dan Brabec (’02 horticulture), owner of Coe’s Flower Shop and Barb Clawson, horticulture program coordinator, to provide floral pieces for the September 19 event.

With the assistance of Clawson, Brabec and Jeff Iles, chair of the Department of Horticulture, students worked in teams to construct 20 structures and table centerpieces covered in flowers.
