About the Exhibition

nAMUH is an imaginative story featuring 197 original works on paper by Iowa-City based artist Ryan Bentzinger. These drawings are part of the artists’ newly finished fine art novel. nAMUH, Book 1, will be self-published by the artist, and will be available at local stores by the winter of 2015-16.

This fine art novel explores a post-apocalyptic world full of mysteries and tales of hardship. Showcasing 13 works on paper from Chapters 2 and 3, a fellowship of characters unite and embark on their joint quest to find answers regarding the chaotic world in which they live. Why are children going missing? What are these rumors about robots living on the islands?
