The Grand Tour: Europe Through Artists’ Eyes              















June 9 – September 16, 2018































From the Greek Parthenon to the great cathedrals of France, European monuments have inspired artists for hundreds of years. Named for the traditional trip of Europe undertaken by mainly upper class young men of means in search of art, culture, and the roots of Western civilization, this exhibition examines how the artists in the CRMA collection, both American and European, responded to the great sites of Europe.

This exhibition and accompanying educational programming has been made possible by Rockwell Collins and by the CRST International Donor-Advised Fund of the Greater Cedar Rapids Community Foundation.  Additional support has been provided by the Hotel-Motel Tax Fund, 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.  Annual educational programming support has been provided in part by Transamerica.
