About Me:
The Blanden Memorial Art Museum was built in 1932 as the first permanent art facility in Iowa. Former Mayor of Fort Dodge, (1887-1889) Charles Granger Blanden, generously funded he construction of the museum in memory of his wife Elizabeth Mills Blanden.
The neoclassical building, which is on the national Register of Historic Places, is located in the interesting Oak Hill Historic District of Fort Dodge, housing a superb permanent collection and offering diverse traveling exhibitions, speaker programs, musical performances and extensive children and adult workshops.
