English Country Dance @ Senior Center | Iowa City | Iowa | United States

Come to the English Country Dance and enjoy moving in smooth figures to gorgeous live music. Everyone who wants to dance is guaranteed a partner. Each dance is taught, and all ages are encouraged to participate. The dance form dates back to the 16th century. It appears in some movies portraying Queen Elizabeth I, as well as in film adaptations of Dickens and Jane Austen novels. Each dance has its own music. The tunes are hauntingly beautiful, ranging from old ballads, jigs, and reels to several immortalized in classical music and opera.

“Flight Pattern: Birds in Art” Exhibition @ Cedar Rapids Musuem of Art

"Flight Pattern: Birds in Art" Exhibition @ Cedar Rapids Musuem of Art | Cedar Rapids | Iowa | United States

Flight Pattern: Birds in Art
March 2018 – March 2019

In flight or at rest, birds have long fascinated artists. Often used as symbolic objects for particular virtues, families, or countries, birds in art can carry meaning far beyond their forms. From John Buck’s vibrant woodcut of the extinct dodo bird to Laurie Hogin’s fantastically feathered creations, Flight Pattern celebrates the great variety of avian art in the CRMA collection.

Terra Nova: Ten Years @ Cedar Rapids Museum of Art
Jan 20 @ 12:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Terra Nova: Ten Years

November 3, 2018 – October 6, 2019

 

The CRMA celebrates ten years of collaborating with the Iowa Ceramics Center and Glass Studio. In 2009, the CRMA began meeting with artists who had completed residencies at the Ceramics Center and acquiring a piece of their work—often completed during their residency—for the Museum’s collection. This mutually beneficial arrangement allowed the artists to establish themselves in a museum collection and receive professional experience with curators while growing the CRMA’s collection of three-dimensional art. The exhibition will display artwork from every resident from 2009 to 2018 and both executive directors, a testament to the fruitfulness of this collaboration.

Please see our website for hours and holiday closings.

Art in the Afternoon @ Senior Center

Art in the Afternoon @ Senior Center

1/20: Eloy Barragan
Eloy Barragan invites everyone to participate in a dialogue on the relationship between dance and technology. This conversation has thrilled dancers, photographers, filmmakers, and artists since the beginning of photography and film. More than ever, artists are interested in screendance, an art that not only captures the movement created by the choreographer and dancer, but the dance itself and the camera, highlighting the transforming art of editing. We’ll explore the relationship between camera and subject, director and dancer, and director and editor, in addition to the transient existence of dance and permanent nature of film. Bringing together images of the moving body with technology embraces the investigation of the magical hybrid art form, ScreenDance, also known as video-dance and dance for the camera.
