On March 17, Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds declared a statewide public health disaster emergency in response to the state's coronavirus outbreak. The proclamation includes the restriction of in-person gatherings of 10 or more people along with the temporary closing of several businesses in the arts, culture and entertainment sector.

Most of the public gatherings listed on the Hoopla calendar are canceled or postponed through the end of April. Please check with event organizers to confirm the status of events you see listed.

A virtual option has been created to post and search for those events and programs that are offering an online gathering opportunity for our Hoopla readers. Enjoy!

Event Description

Salem has received a large mural, that was carefully transferred from Trinity UMC. Artist Eleanor Yates was commissioned by Matthew 25 to paint an enchanting depiction of Matthew 19:14 titled, "Children of God," and the story behind the mural is a testament to the Cedar Rapids community's resilience and recovery from the 2008 flood. 

Please join a celebratory open house and "Art of Resilience" fundraiser for Matthew 25, who will receive all proceeds from a silent auction (freewill donations also accepted).
