125! 125 Masterworks from the Collection
September 26, 2020-January 17, 2021
Continuing the celebration of the 125th anniversary of the CRMA, this exhibition looks at 125 masterpieces drawn from our own collection. Works which normally do not hang together because of their diverse subjects or styles will coexist in an exuberant display of the CRMA’s treasures. Pieces by Grant Wood and Marvin Cone are joined by those of important early African-American artist Henry Ossawa Tanner and American Impressionist Carl Frieseke. Roman treasures will be on view alongside modern and contemporary masterworks.
This exhibition and accompanying educational programming have been made possible by The Henry Luce Foundation. Additional annual 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, the Program Grant Fund of the Greater Cedar Rapids Community Foundation, members of the Cedar Rapids Museum of Art, and contributors to the Museum’s Annual Fund. Annual educational programming has been supported in part by the Transamerica.
