Event Description

For the first time in its history, the CRMA is presenting an exhibition of science fiction and fantasy art. Images of space travel, super heroes, and dragons surround visitors as they take in this influential art form rarely seen in art museums. Out of This World celebrates the 40th anniversary of ICON, Iowa’s longest running science fiction and fantasy convention. This three-day gathering brings together more than 500 fans of these related genres each year for a variety of fun and educational programs. This exhibition focuses on the artistic works of ten artists that have been designated “guests of honor” attendees at past ICON conventions and shares this unique art form with the Museum’s regular audience.

This exhibition is made possible in part by Mindbridge Foundation. Additional support has been provided by the Hotel-Motel Tax Fund, the Program Grant Fund of the Greater Cedar Rapids Community Foundation, Rockwell Collins, the Iowa Arts Council, a division of the Iowa Department of Cultural Affairs and the National Endowment for the Arts, members of the Cedar Rapids Museum of Art, and contributors to the Museum’s Annual Fund.
