Continuing its long and rich tradition of presenting children's book illustration as an art form, the Cedar Rapids Museum of Art is thrilled to present the work of Mary GrandPré.  A children's book illustrator for more than 20 years, GrandPré hails originally from St. Paul, Minnesota.  Illustrator of several children's titles, GrandPré is perhaps best known for her illustrations of the American version of J. K. Rowling's series of Harry Potter books.  The Cedar Rapids exhibition will be her first in many years and will feature works from all aspects of her career: children's books, Harry Potter books, magazine covers, and poster design.  Mary GrandPré: Harry Potter and Beyond is sure to appeal to all audiences and reveal the extraordinary talents of this multi-faceted artist.

This exhibition has been made possible through the generous support of GreatAmerica Leasing Corporation*, Lil' Drug Store Products*, Linn County Rural Electric Cooperative, Central Iowa Power Cooperative, Intermec, Nordstrom Direct, International Paper Cedar River Mill, and Shuttleworth & Ingersoll, P.L.C.

*Funds of the Greater Cedar Rapids Community Foundation.
