Aftermath & update: the gallery is ok! We survived the Derecho that hit Cedar Rapids on Monday, August 10th. Our building did not take heavy damage and we are so incredibly fortunate. A billboard was swept into the park next door and bricks from the adjacent building (Phong Lan) tumbled. Our hearts go out to our business neighbors who sustained heavy damage and broken windows.
No art was damaged at the gallery. We were without power for 5 days and no phones or internet for 12 days. A sincere thanks to ALL of you for your patience. We’re still catching up on appointments and deadlines with clients and artists. We’re truly grateful for your understanding. We are touched that so many of you checked in on us during this disastrous time. We’re lucky to be a part of this community, here, with you all.
Below are photos and video (to be added) of the aftermath that we took. Also listed are community resources to help recovery efforts as well as news coverage.
