The Cedar Rapids Museum of Art is housing a two-gallery exhibition of the works of the illustrious sculptor Malvina Hoffman. From her early bust of her father Richard to her famous commission from Chicago’s Field Museum to create their “Hall of Man,” Malvina Hoffman: A Sculptor’s Journey traces Hoffman’s artistic roots from her teenage creations through apprenticeship with Auguste Rodin and into her arrival as an independent and gifted artist.
The exhibit is on display now through August 31st, 2018. Kate Kunau, Cedar Rapids Museum of Art curator, speaks with IPR’s Jacqueline Halbloom about Malvina Hoffman’s works and legacy. Tune in on Wednesday at 8 a.m. to find out more about Malvina Hoffman.
