I can't believe that I lived in the area for a decade before I made it to the art museum. It has a good collection including artists with a tie to Iowa.

Enjoyed the Grant Wood section. There was some other good pieces scattered throughout but overall didn't really enjoy the rest of it.

The museum has some new and some permanent displays, so it's always interesting. Their gift shop has some fantastic things at a reasonable price.

I have seen visitors from far-flung places drop their jaws at the marvelous collection at the Cedar Rapids Museum of Art. Whether we have visiting guests from NYC, LA or Europe, we make a point of taking viistors to see not only the traveling exhibits, but the permanent collection. Grant Wood, Marvin Cone and Mauricio Lasansky are featured along with... More
