Description

From January 18 - May 11, 2014, the Cedar Rapids Museum of Art will host an exhibition of the paintings of Conger Metcalf.

Born in Cedar Rapids, Conger Metcalf began his art studies at the Stone City Art Colony, after which he enrolled at Coe College and studied under Marvin Cone. After graduating from Coe in 1936, Metcalf studied at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, which was to become his home, although he always maintained close ties to Cedar Rapids. During his service in World War II and on subsequent trips afterward, Metcalf studied the European masters, who were very influential on his work. This exhibition, celebrating the 100th anniversary of Metcalf’s birth in 1914, looks at the CRMA’s extensive holdings of his art.

This exhibition is made possible in part by a Program Fund Grant from the Greater Cedar Rapids Community Foundation.
