Dick Pinney: Jack of All Trades

Now-October 30, 2022

Dick Pinney (1924-1996) was a long-time favorite in the Cedar Rapids art scene.  Accomplished in many media, this former creative director for Stamats Communications and Coe College vice president was perhaps most famous for the numerous carved wood assemblages that he created, usually as commissions for area business leaders.  Paintings, drawings, ceramics, assemblages, constructions, games, and puppets were all part of Pinney’s repertoire.  This exhibition, timed to coincide with the 25th anniversary of Pinney’s passing in 1996, celebrates the artist’s diverse and wide-reaching artwork.

This exhibition and accompanying educational programming have been made possible in part by the GreatAmerica Financial Services Corporation Donor-Advised Fund of the Greater Cedar Rapids Community Foundation.
Additional annual support has been provided by the Iowa Arts Council, a division of the Iowa Department of Cultural Affairs and the National Endowment for the Arts, Funds for the Community 2020 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 Transamerica.
