The public is invited to learn more about the global experiences of noted American artists in a presentation Tuesday, March 25. The 11 a.m. program in 234 Cedar Hall features Cedar Rapids Museum of Art Curator of Collections and Exhibitions, Sean Ulmer. He will present highlights from the recently opened exhibition “American Artists Abroad, 1900-1950.”
Covering a variety of media, Ulmer’s presentation will concentrate on the period between 1900- and 1950–a period rich in all the arts–considering the sorts of subjects artists chose and what factors influenced their decisions of subject matter and style. Included in his discussion will be the work of several artists from the CRMA collection who traveled abroad recording their experiences, including Ethel Coe, Marvin Cone, Oliver Grover, Bertha Jaques, Charles Keeler, James Swann and Grant Wood.
The public is welcome at this free presentation, 11 a.m. on March 25.
