Third Annual Murals & Martinis Join us for our third annual Murals & Martinis: an art auction to benefit the Cedar Rapids Mural Trail. Held at the Paramount Theatre, this event features a variety of artwork from local, professional and semi-professional artists for you to bid on, artist meet & greets, music and of course, martinis! Grab your friends and help us add more art to downtown Cedar Rapids by supporting us through this great fundraising event. Be A Part Of The Next Mural! The success of our organizaiton is in large part due to the many community members and organizations that have donated money, time, and resources to make our efforts possible. In order to continue to bring artwork to Cedar Rapids, we need building owners, artists, and funding. If you're interested in starting a conversation about how you can help, contact us today! The Student Art Walk Each spring, students from local schools are invited to submit their art work based on a specific theme. From those submissions several pieces are chosen to be reproduced on banners sponsored by local businesses and are hung around downtown Cedar Rapids throughout the summer. Visit Our Inaugural Mural! “Entering the Eras” celebrates the vitality of the Cedar Rapids Downtown cityscape, from its early stages to the late 1920’s. We unveiled our inaugural mural on May 19, 2012 at 2pm during our event with friends, family, & Cedar Rapidians. Attendees were able to see the art, meet the artist, and participate in a variety of activities & entertainment. To see the mural yourself, head to 3rd St in downtown Cedar Rapids between 2nd & 3rd Ave. Join Our Team! Murals and More is truly a grassroots, citizen driven organization.
