Passport to the Parks – Time Check Park @ Time Check Park
Jul 22 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am

Garden Yard Games!

Every Monday starting June 10th through July 29th we’ll be at a different park in the city. This year we’re partnering with Linn County Education Outreach and we’ll be learning something new about agriculture- from how things grow to how we can make a positive impact on the environment. This program will be geared towards Pre-k- elementary aged kids. Attend more than five and earn an Ag Brag Certificate. We’ll also be connecting each site to the closest community garden/urban farm to give families the opportunity to learn about food production in their neighborhoods and how to get more involved in their own food production.

We always recommend confirming details before attending. We hope to see you there!

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.
