When it comes to culture and arts in Iowa, you don’t have to live in a large metro to indulge in cultural richness.
Culture and arts surround you in Iowa’s Creative Corridor. The new Hancher Auditorium hosts some of the world’s greatest performance icons. Orchestra Iowa is one of the oldest continuously operating symphonies west of the Mississippi and performs in Cedar Rapids’ historic Paramount Theatre. From rock or jazz to opera and live theatre, you can pick your performance almost every night of the week.
Culture and arts in Iowa’s Creative Corridor means more than 30 museums featuring exhibits and collections you’ll only find here, including the African American Museum, Herbert Hoover Presidential Library and Museum, National Czech & Slovak Museum, Cedar Rapids Museum of Art, and the University of Iowa Museum of Art.
There’s plenty to experience at your own pace, and you can find all that’s happening in one place. Visit culturalcorridor.org, the official website of the Iowa Cultural Corridor Alliance, for a listing of events and links to more than 100 cultural organizations in Iowa’s Creative Corridor.
