"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 16 @ 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.

Peru and Machu Picchu @ Senior Center
Jan 17 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm
Peru and Machu Picchu @ Senior Center | Iowa City | Iowa | United States

Have Peru and Machu Picchu been on your list of places to visit? We made the journey in October and are eager to share our experience. Please join us. After arrival in Lima, we visited cultural and artistic sites, galleries, and colonial Lima from the 1500s. A short flight brought us to the World Heritage city of Cuzco. We toured cultural sites nearby before a raft trip on the Urubamba River. A scenic train ride through the Sacred Valley ended at the amazing site of Machu Picchu. Mountain villages of Chinchero (12,500 ft) and an Inca village were our next stops. We flew back to Lima and departed for home, tired and happy we made the journey.
