Dubuque Street Art - Memorial to Ada Hayden

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 16 January 2019 in Art & Design and Portfolio.

Ada Hayden (August 14, 1884 – August 12, 1950) was an American botanist, educator, and preservationist. She was the curator of the Iowa State University Herbarium, which was renamed the Ada Hayden Herbarium in her honour in 1988. During her career, she added more than 40,000 specimens to the herbarium. Her studies and conservation work were particularly important in ensuring the preservation of the tallgrass prairie. She was an active member of the Ecological Society of America for many years.

This mural was spotted on October 15, 2018 at 233 Main Street in downtown Dubuque and is 114' wide and 32' high.
