The Pentacrest Lawn – The Grass is NOT Always Greener on the Other Side
This podcast reveals the untold narrative of the barrier between the University of Iowa and Iowa City community created by the Pentacrest lawn.
On the surface, the Pentacrest lawn may seem like a space of community and camaraderie. However, to those not directly affiliated with the University, the Pentacrest lawn may seem off limits. This podcast features interviews with Iowa City community members, University of Iowa faculty, and University of Iowa students. We hear each of their opinions in regard to the Pentacrest lawn. Our overall goal of this podcast is to tell an untold story of the lawn, one of separation fostered by the invisible barrier created by the grass and the black, iron fence that surrounds it.
