If you like art and appreciate broadening your horizons, CSPS is worth checking out. There are art exhibits on first floor as well as gallery and performance space on the second floor. Whenever I am in Cedar Rapids, I make a point to stop here to see the exhibits. Usually beautiful and thought-provoking art. There is also an impressive permanent... More

CSPS was not having a concert while we were in Cedar Rapids, but there was an art exhibition that was very interesting and I looked at the rest of the space. What a great venue for hearing music and seeing new artwork. From the programming it was obvious that the curators are thoughtful and interested in a wide variety of... More

Great venue for entertainment from all over the world! If you can't find music or art to enjoy here, I would be concerned about my tastes. After renovation, you have a warm, welcoming and intimate setting to hear some of the best music and musicians anywhere. Bar area has wine, bottle beer and craft beer available for your enjoyment. It... More

CSPS is a music/concerts/arts venue run by the nonprofit Legion Arts. They bring in world class musicians from around the world to perform. I see a show there at least once a month and am always blown away by the level of talent they are able to bring in to Cedar Rapids. They've brought in PHOX, Pokey LaFarge, Parker Millsap... More

The reviews of the CSPS I read rated it highly. We were expecting something more. For starters, the entrance is poorly marked and difficult to find. This place adds a new meaning to the phrase "self guided" as there is no one at the door, no one walking around, basically....no one in the place. The limited amount of exhibits makes... More

We LOVE attending concerts here. They seem to draw in amazing and obscure acts from around the world. We are fans of all kinds of music and can easily find something fun to attend every month or two. We'd be there more often if it wasn't a two hour drive! Check their website and get on the mailing list to... More

Excellent place to hear music! Newly renovated after the flood, the auditorium is nicer, there is now A/C and a bar. Super fun for checking out new talent! Highly recommend

I had not been to CSPS/Legion Arts since the facility was remodeled following a devastating flood in Cedar Rapids (and beyond). I live over an hours drive away so it has to really be someone I want to see. I attended a concert on July 25 by Conjunto Chappottin, a Cuban "Son" Band. Not only was the band well worth... More
