An exhibit has sparked controversy at Iowa State. 

Samantha Barbour, graduate student in graphic design, will host an open forum at 11 a.m. Monday in room 303 of the College of Design to discuss last week’s exhibit in the College of Design that was centered around displaying rape culture.

Advertisements at the exhibit were shown that promoted rape culture, and sticky notes were provided to participants so that they could express their feelings. Most thoughts expressed were negative and angry in nature, Barbour explained.
