About Face: Portraiture from the Collection

November 25, 2006 - August 1, 2007

Focusing on images of individuals and groups, About Face: Portraiture from the Collection will operate in tandem with the portraiture section of Midwestern Visions--an exhibition of Midwestern  art currently on display at the CRMA. Spanning a greater geography and a greater time frame than Midwestern Visions, About Face will address ways in which portraiture evolved through time, analyzing consistencies of portrayals and noting divergences.

From solitary portraits of people of stature to group portraits of friends or colleagues, the portraits on view as part of About Face represent a full range of portraiture types. Their creators are primarily American or British and the works date from the mid-19th century to the present day. Some figure among the earliest  acquisitions of the Cedar Rapids Museum of Art while others reflect more recent acquisitions, continuing a long history of collecting in this genre.

As much as I agree with you regarding the lure other sptros carry to our best athletes, I think the real fault lies in coaching and fitness deficiencies. Again, we've discussed this before, but there is so much idiocy on display in the MLS. That, more than anything else, is why I can't stomach watching.I'm a firm believer that a team with overall mediocre talent can beat a team with superior talent if the mediocre talent has superior coaching. The ball, after all, should do most of the work. A team that is well-organized defensively can do much to negate a great disparity in talent. Playing the ball sideways and gasp! backward simply to retain possession, forcing the other team to chase you all over the park, can be a highly useful way of negating such a disparity in talent. However, you've eventually got to be able to score if you want to win the game. And as Herman Edwards will tell you, you play to win the game.Combine the pervasive bad coaching in this country with what I perceive as a lack of true fitness in most MLS players Blanco was able to be an impact player at 37-years-old and carrying a gut the size of Theo Walcott and you end up with the quality of play seen (not by me) on a weekly basis in the MLS.Oh, and if you watch the whole video, notice Omar Cummings' goal: I'm half-convinced it was an attempt to trap the ball, rather than an outright shot.VN:R_U [1.9.10_1130](from 1 vote)
