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.

Local government officials, leaders from human rights organizations, religious leaders, and other allies will read Dr. King’s words, which remind us both to celebrate what we have accomplished and recognize what we have left to do. Throughout the day, library patrons will also have a chance to write or draw their dreams for a more just world, which will be on display throughout the week.

Additional owl calls $5 each. REGISTRATION DEADLINE: January 15.  Call Chuck at 892-6485.
