This exhibition, drawn from the permanent collection, celebrates the use of color by artists.  While many viewers expect art to be colorful, in reality, much of it is not.  When it is used, color has an amazing ability to add power and drama to a work.  Artists often utilize color for expressive purposes, seeking to elicit a specific emotion or feeling.  ROY G. BIV plays off the idea of the color wheel (Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, Violet) to explore the role that color plays in art.

This exhibition and accompanying educational programming have been made possible in part by the McIntyre Foundation and GreatAmerica Financial Services.  Additional support has been provided by the Program Support Grant Fund of the Greater Cedar Rapids Community Foundation, the National Endowment for the Arts and the Iowa Arts Council, which exists within the Iowa Economic Development Authority, members of the Cedar Rapids Museum of Art, and contributors to the Museum’s Annual Fund.  Annual educational programming has been supported in part by Transamerica.
