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

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.
