Power and Protest: Political Photographs and Prints

January 12 – April 28, 2019

American politics have been contentious for as long as America has existed. Drawn from the CRMA’s own collection of photographs and prints, Power and Protest celebrates the glossy official images of political power, the behind-the-scenes work to keep people there, and the demonstrations, marches, and rallies that spoke to that power. Power and Protest was designed as a complement to the John F. Kennedy exhibition and both emphasize the role art has had in shaping the political views of our nation.

This exhibition has been made possible by the McIntyre Foundation and the Diamond V Corporate Fund of the Greater Cedar Rapids Community Foundation.

Additional exhibition and educational support has been provided by the Hotel-Motel Tax Fund , the Iowa Arts Council, a division of the Iowa Department of Cultural Affairs and the National Endowment for the Arts, members of the Cedar Rapids Museum of Art, and contributors to the Museum’s Annual Fund. Annual educational programming support has been provided in part by Transamerica.
