Mary Pappajohn (BS Related Art, 1955) is profiled in the Fall 2010 issue of Minnesota magazine. Pappajohn and her husband, John, began collecting art almost 50 years ago and began to focus on contemporary sculpture when they ran out of wall space. The Pappajohn's collection ranks as one of the top 200 in the world according to ARTnews magazine. "In a gesture of civic-minded generosity and in the spirit of sharing what they love, the Pappajohns donated more than two dozen sculptures worth millions of dollars to create a four-acre public sculpture garden in downtown Des Moines," writes Erin Peterson, author of the profile.
