The Cedar Rapids Museum of Art--Midwest Summer: Light and Warmth

This week the Daily Palette is celebrating Midwest Summer: Light and Warmth, an exhibition at the Cedar Rapids Museum of Art (CRMA). This show is on view through Sunday.

"This exciting exhibition presents recent work by many of Iowa's best-known artists. The works in the exhibition were created during the past three years and present a wide range of style and media.

The theme, Midwest Summer: Light and Warmth, allows the artists to address aspects of summer that appeal to the senses in any manner from representational to abstract. The exhibition may pair a work representing the golden light of a summer evening with one evoking the steamy mugginess of a lazy August day. The origin of this exhibition was a desire on the CRMA's part to continue its successful series of presentations of Iowa artists, integrating group and solo exhibitions of Iowa artists into the exhibition schedule and folding Iowa art into its presentations of American art."
