USS Iowa Interpretive Panels - Saving the USS Iowa

At the time the photos were taken of these ten USS Iowa Interpretive Panels they were on temporary display at the Iowa State Historical Building in Des Moines, Iowa. The photos were taken almost two weeks ago from the publish date of this article. The article writer was told by museum staff the panels will be on display for another two weeks and moved to their permanent home aboard the USS Iowa Battleship, BB 61, which is docked at the Pacific Battleship Museum Fleet in San Pedro, California.

Artist Sarah Grant along with a team of other artists, researchers and designers with her company, Sticks,  created these hand painted murals depicting the life and history of one of the greatest battleships in U.S. Navy history.

This series of articles are part of the ongoing series about the USS Iowa.
