The Drake Law Library is featuring the art of Frank Harty November-December 2010.

Mr. Harty is a Drake Law School grad and a former Editor in Chief of the Drake Law Review. He is also an adjunct professor at the Law School teaching trial advocacy and employment law.

As a youngster in the Des Moines public schools, Mr. Harty took a series of classes at the Des Moines Art Center. He's been hooked on art since. He is an avid art historian who also loves to draw and paint. Although he loved art, he realized that he did not want to be a starving artist, so he did not major in art at college. So he chose the next best thing- the law. Mr. Harty says, "I approach the law, especially trial practice, as an artistic endeavor. If you cannot express yourself and have fun, why do it!"

While Mr. Harty has painted dozens and dozens of still-lifes, landscapes and portraits, he doesn't actually sell any of his work. Instead, when asked to contribute to silent auction fundraisers, he throws in a painting.


The Drake Law Library would like to invite students, faculty and staff to display their art in the library. The library provides a showcase for rotating art exhibits in the open reading area at the top of the 2nd floor stairs. If you are an artist who'd like to share your work with the Drake Law School community, please contact Deborah Sulzbach.
