Days of Disaster: The Douglas Starch Works Explosion

The History Center commemorates the 100th anniversary of the Douglas Starch Works Explosion, an event with repercussions for the entirety of Linn County – including the workers at the plant, local residents, business owners , and beyond.

The exhibit explores the disaster itself as well as the days immediately following. It’s a story of tragedy and resilience – and it’s a story of community coming together at a moment that could have sown division.

 

The History Center is open Tuesday – Saturday, 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM. You can find more information about this exhibit, and our other exhibits at https://www.historycenter.org/current-exhibit .

John Beckelman: Horizon Suite @ The Cedar Rapids Museum of Art
Sep 19 @ 12:00 pm – 8:00 pm

John Beckelman’s Horizon Suite is a group of six recently-completed three-dimensional landscapes. Using the expressive potential of clay and a variety of other materials, Beckelman’s work explores the transitional space where the sky meets the land or sea. The horizontal sweep of this space is mediated by intimate moments of surprising texture, shifting light, and fleeting color. Horizon Suite attempts to gently entice the viewer into the inner landscapes and interior spaces of our imagination and memory. Beckelman finds a curious intersection between the seemingly enduring and timeless character of earth and the fleeting yet wonderful impermanence of the world in which we live. John Beckelman’s art has been shown in exhibitions throughout the country and he has been the recipient of numerous awards, commissions, and grants. He received his master of fine arts degree in ceramics and his master of science degree in ceramics from Illinois State University. Beckelman is the Robert O. Daniel Professor of Art, Emeritus at Coe College. He lives and works in Cedar Rapids.

Jazzy Jamboree

The Diva is Back! In 2018, Christine Bellomy brought her clarinet magic to the Red Cedar stage with A Little Klezmer Among Friends. The audience response was clear: MORE CHRISTINE! The Red Cedar Trio presents jazz favorites by Gershwin, Reinhardt/Grappelli, and Brubeck (arranged by local jazz legend Steve Shanley), along-side Iowa Moods, a newly composed set of jazz variations on the “Iowa Corn Song” by Michael Kimber, Red Cedar’s composer-in-residence. The program also includes Concerto a Tre by jazz-era composer Ingolf Dahl, a complex and groovy work inspired by Benny Goodman.

Special thanks to Artist Sponsors Juanita Dennert and ImOn Communications.

Sponsored by the Program Grant Fund of the Greater Cedar Rapids Community Foundation, the City of Marion, the Iowa Arts Council,the Giacoletto Foundation, and Farmers State Bank.

Terra Nova: Ten Years @ Cedar Rapids Museum of Art
Sep 19 @ 12:00 pm – 8:00 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 check our website for hours and parking information. Other exhibits are listed at http://www.crma.org/Exhibition/Exhibition.aspx
