American Visionary: John F. Kennedy’s Life and Times Exhibition @ The Cedar Rapids Museum of Art
Apr 16 @ 12:00 pm – 4:00 pm
American Visionary: John F. Kennedy’s Life and Times Exhibition @ The Cedar Rapids Museum of Art | Cedar Rapids | Iowa | United States

“American Visionary: John F. Kennedy’s Life and Times” Exhibition
Now – May 19, 2019

American Visionary: John F. Kennedy’s Life and Times brings together seventy-seven images culled from the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library, Getty Images, private collections, and the Kennedy family archives. The dramatic scope of Kennedy’s life is evident in these photographs—from his first congressional bid as a decorated war hero in 1946, his fairytale marriage to Jacqueline Bouvier in 1953, his run for the White House in 1960 and role as commander in chief, to the tragedy of his death in Dallas in 1963. These images remain as vivid evidence of John Kennedy’s imprint upon the American conscience. More Info >>

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.
