What’s your favorite Iowa place? A University of Iowa professor is encouraging Iowans to bring their heritage, memories, and fondness for the state to a creative process that will inspire floats, costumes, and more for an Iowa City Carnaval Parade planned for June 2013.

“A carnaval parade is art on parade to celebrate both individuality and community,” says Carnaval organizer Loyce Arthur, who is also head of design, director of undergraduate studies, and associate professor in the UI Theatre Arts Department in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. “In an increasingly technological and impersonal world, the carnaval arts can be used to bridge differences and celebrate human resilience and creativity.”
