CLINTON, Iowa – Sarah Bauer of Sterling, a sophomore at Ashford University, and Carmen Bechtal, a junior from Clinton, Iowa, were invited to participate in a private luncheon.

The students join a small group of students today, who will have lunch with Alison Sarr, the next installation artist at the Figge Art Musem in Davenport, Iowa. Bauer and Bechtal were nominated by Ashford's art professor, Anna Pagnucci.

After the luncheon, the artist will discuss her work in the museum's John Deere Auditorium.

Saar's exhibit, "STILL ..." is on display at the Figge museum until April 14. Visit www.figgeartmuseaum.org for more information about the exhibit.
