Amy Worthen

Amy Worthen is a well known Des Moines printmaker and scholar in the art of printmaking. Her engravings, often architectural in content, combine humor, history and a dedication to expressing the full effect of the printmaking medium. All of her compositions are rendered in fine line detail. She is perhaps best known for her Capitol and Terrace Hill series which combine local landmarks with fanciful characters and perspectives. Amy is currently working on prints influenced by her time spent abroad in Italy. Amy is Curator of Prints at the Des Moines Art Center. She is known nationally and internationally and has been exhibited in shows in major cities all over the U.S. and included in several shows in Europe. She received her B.A. in Art from Smith College and her M.A. in Printmaking from the University of Iowa. Her prints are in many public and museum collections including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, the National Museum of American Art, Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D.C., and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and worked on commission projects for Iowa State University.
