    Brucemore announces the reopening of the 21-room mansion for guided tours on March 3, 2015. Explore over a century of Cedar Rapids history through the lives of the three families who called Brucemore home—the Sinclairs, the Douglases, and the Halls. They were business and community leaders during a century of evolution in the Midwest. An investigation of the mansion’s Queen Anne architecture, 1925 Grant Wood Porch, 1929 Skinner pipe organ, and 1930s Grizzly Bar and Tahitian Room reflect the history of remarkable people. The changes they made to their estate, the impact they had on their community, and the stories they left behind shape our understanding of modern Cedar Rapids, eastern Iowa, and the American Midwest.

    Mansion tours are offered March through December, Tuesday through Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 3:00 p.m. Tours begin on the hour and last approximately 50 minutes. Admission is free to Brucemore members, $7.00 for adults, and $3.00 for youth between the ages of 6 and 18. Purchase tickets fifteen minutes before the top of the hour in the Brucemore Store located in the Visitor Center. Groups of 15 or more are encouraged to schedule a private tour a minimum of two weeks in advance. Visit www.brucemore.org or call (319) 362-7375 for more information or to schedule a group tour.

    Experience Brucemore, an unparalleled blend of tradition and culture, located at 2160 Linden Drive SE, Cedar Rapids, Iowa. At the heart of the historic 26-acre estate stands a nineteenth-century mansion filled with the stories of three Cedar Rapids families.  Concerts, theater, programs, and tours enliven the site and celebrate the heritage of a community.  For more information, call (319) 362-7375 or visit www.brucemore.org.

    Original works by local high school students due April 3rd

    Washington, D.C. – Congressman Dave Loebsack announced today that high school students in the Iowa’s Second Congressional District may now submit their original artwork to be considered for the 2015 Congressional Art Competition. The annual competition is hosted by the United States House of Representatives to recognize talented young artists from across the nation. The winning student from each district is invited to Washington, D.C. to attend a reception held in their honor and will have his or her artwork displayed in the U.S. Capitol for one year. The deadline for entries to be received is April 3rd.

    “The vast amount of talent that Iowa’s students display year after year continues to amaze me. The creativity of our talented young artists demonstrates that the arts are thriving in Iowa,” said Loebsack. “For a young artist, having your artwork displayed in the U.S. Capitol is quite a remarkable accomplishment. I look forward to seeing this year’s entries and meeting the winning student.”

    Once again, to make the contest as easy as possible and open to as many students as possible, this year’s winner will be chosen by the public through an online vote. Details on how to submit art work are available by clicking here to visit Loebsack’s website. All entries must be received no later than Friday, April, 3rd at 11:59pm. The artist of the winning piece will receive two round trip tickets to Washington, D.C. to attend the reception and unveiling of their artwork in the Capitol (all other expenses must be covered by the winner). For additional details about the competition, students or teachers should contact Jared Mullendore at 563-323-5988 or by email at Jared.Mullendore@mail.house.gov.
