A Show of Hands: Ceramics from the Collection

December 4, 2010 - July 29, 2012

In 2007, Iowa City resident and long-time photographer Joan Liffring-Zug Bourret donated a series of important studio ceramics to the Cedar Rapids Museum of Art. Dating from the pivotal 1970s and 1980s, these ceramics provided the missing base for the small but growing collection of ceramics at the Museum. Unknown to many, the CRMA has been slowly and carefully collecting ceramics to build up the decorative arts section of the collection. With key purchases from The Naked Truth: 2004 International Juried Wood Fire Exhibition of 2004-2005, and others along the way, the Museum has continued to build this section of the collection through purchases and donations from artists, especially those in Iowa. While individual pieces have been included in group exhibitions in the past, a separate, dedicated exhibition of ceramics from the collection has never happened at the CRMA. A Show of Hands celebrates this growing section of the collection, and shares with the public for the first time the extraordinary art produced by these artists.

This exhibition is supported in part by the Momentum Fund of The Greater Cedar Rapids Community Foundation.

Karl:This looks like a terrific, easy-to-navigate web site, with some rellay important information to share. I'm sure it's sponsored by a health care provider group, but as their costs go down (and profits go up), the consumer's costs go down, too, as a function of the lower cost of the generic drugs, and that's a good thing. The $64 question is whether the health care provider's premiums (or fees) go down in a commensurate way, following the cost savings effected by the consumer's requesting of generic equivalent drugs.
