This exciting exhibition presents recent work by many of Iowa’s remarkable artists. Juried by Kate Kunau, the CRMA’s new Associate Curator of Collections and Exhibitions, each participating artist lives in the state of Iowa. The works in the exhibition were created during the past three years and present a wide range of styles and media. The theme, Midwest Summer: Light and Warmth, allows the artists to address aspects of summer in any manner from representational to abstract. Midwest Summer: Light and Warmth is a testament to the number of talented artists in Iowa and to the CRMA’s long tradition of supporting the arts throughout the state and the region.

This exhibition is made possible 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, GreatAmerica Financial Services Corporation Donor-Advised Fund of the Greater Cedar Rapids Community Foundation, the Richard D. Pinney Exhibition Fund, members of the Cedar Rapids Museum of Art, and contributors to the Museum’s Annual Fund.
