Setting the Table: The Art of Still Life















May 19 – September 2, 2018              















Still life emerged as a genre of painting in the early 17th century in Europe. Including all kinds of man-made or natural objects, cut flowers, fruit, vegetables, fish, game, etc., still life paintings were highly symbolic and reflect the values of the society and artist that creates it. This exhibition showcases many of the still life works in the CRMA collection in a broad array of media.

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.
