By July 10, 2020 No Comments

The Cedar Rapids Museum of Art (CRMA) is excited to announce the
eleventh year of our Free Summer Admission Program! The CRMA will be free for all visitors July 1 through August 30, thanks to our generous sponsors: Cedar Rapids Bank & Trust, Transamerica, TrueNorth and UFG. Face masks will be required and may be purchased at the Visitor Services desk.

“We are thrilled to be able to offer our Free Summer program again this year—our 11 th year! Thanks to the generous support of Cedar Rapids Bank and Trust, Transamerica, TrueNorth and UFG, admission fees are suspended for all visitors through August 30.  We look forward to welcoming people from all across the city and region.  So grab a mask—they’re required—and come on down to the CRMA to enjoy the eight exhibitions we have to offer!”

This summer there are eight separate exhibitions to experience. Our landmark exhibition Across the Atlantic: American Impressionism through the French Lens has been extended through August 30. Its companion exhibition Ooh La La: French Works from the Riley collection is on view until August 16. We are delighted that we have been able to extend these exhibitions so they can be viewed by our community.

There are also six other exhibitions currently on display: Art In Roman Life, Beyond the Prairie: Midwestern Art from the Collection, Grant Wood: From Farm Boy to American Icon, Marvin Cone: An American Vision, Mauricio Lasansky: Master Printmaker, Unwrapped: Gifts from the Peter Norton Family Christmas Project, 1988-2018.

We invite you to come to the CRMA often this summer to experience and explore all that these exhibitions and their programs have to offer! There is something for everyone to enjoy at the CRMA!
