Casual Walk: A Gallery Talk with the Artist

IMG_1397Meet photographer Bob Campagna, the featured artist in the Anderson Gallery. His work in Casual Walk records life’s simple moments in Cedar Rapids’ Czech Village and New Bohemia neighborhoods. Join us for a gallery talk with the artist and hear the stories behind his work.

From the artist:

As a youth in Cedar Rapids, I often bicycled from my northwest side family home to visit my best friend Dick Crofter who lived on D Street SW. His world was vastly different than my Belmont neighborhood. We would visit such places as Ted’s Pharmacy, Kosek’s, and Sykora’s Bakery. We played basketball on the Hayes Elementary playground. We attended community theatre in a theatre on Third Street SE.

This exhibit is my Thank You to the many people we encountered and who allowed me to photograph both their place as well as themselves. Through this exhibit I pay honor to the good people and beautiful setting of Czech Village and New Bohemia.

Casual Walk will be on display through July.
