Demolition Reveals UI Art Building

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) -- The removal of flood-damaged buildings at the University of Iowa has enabled views of a historic art building not possible for decades.
   Demolition work ended in February on the former Arts Building complex, which was severely damaged by 2008 flooding. Over the fall and winter, workers demolished wings and additions that were built as the School of Art and Art History expanded.
   Those four buildings hid parts of the Art Building, a brick structure built in 1936.
   John Beldon Scott, director of the university's School of Art and Art History, called it "like going back in time."
   He says no one has seen the building's river-facing facade for 40 years.
   The building is closed and officials are still deciding how to use the structure.
