Annually, Brucemore programs and events feature collaborative event partnerships with local nonprofit organizations, Brucemore-produced programs supported by the onsite Artisan Studio, and a menu of interpretive tour options to educate and engage. Donors support local artistic talent seeking to grow their craft, improvements to our community’s collective quality of life, and events that attract a diverse audience. This prioritizes an economic impact that stays local and unique to Cedar Rapids’ “backyard.” View the Summer Events Guide for upcoming ways to be inspired at Brucemore.

Brucemore has a 40-year reputation for producing quality, trusted programs. The programs and park-like atmosphere at Brucemore improve the quality of life for area residents and play an essential factor for visitors coming to Eastern Iowa. With the help of these donors and sponsors, Brucemore provides a wealth of resources and programming to educate and engage a range of generations, interests, and income levels.
