Free Summer Admission at the CRMA and the Grant Wood Studio

Cedar Rapids, Iowa—The Cedar Rapids Museum of Art (CRMA) is excited to announce our Free Summer Admission Program of 2013! Beginning Tuesday, July 2, the CRMA will be free for all visitors thanks to our generous sponsors: Built by Pros, Cedar Rapids Bank & Trust, United Fire, and Transamerica. This limited time offer will last through September 1, 2013.

The CRMA is a great place to spend the day with your family and friends. We have seven wonderful exhibitions currently on display, so there’s going to be something for everyone to enjoy! Our current exhibitions include:

From Houdini to Hugo: The Art of Brian Selznick
Bertha Jaques: Eye on the World
Taking Shape: Recent Acquisitions in the Fine Art of Craft
The Restless Spirit: American Art from the Collection
Grant Wood: In Focus
Art in Roman Life
Mauricio Lasansky: Master Printmaker 

We would also like to remind you that admission is free at the Grant Wood Studio thanks to a grant from the Esther and Robert Armstrong Charitable Trust. Grant Wood comes to life in this light-filled, inspirational loft known as the Grant Wood Studio located right here in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Wood lived and worked in the Studio from 1924 through 1935, but his spirit is still very much alive as visitors observe the decorative details and craftsmanship that went into transforming the loft into a studio, performance space, and living quarters. Visitors can stand in the very spot where Wood painted some of his most famous works, including American Gothic (1930).
