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.

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.
