Event Description

Launching the CRMA's year-long celebration of the 175th anniversary of Iowa's statehood will be an unusual look at Iowa’s most famous artist, Grant Wood. While known for his iconic American Gothic (Art Institute of Chicago) and other Regionalist works from his mature style, Grant Wood was constantly exploring styles, techniques, and media. This exhibition will bring together works from both the CRMA collection as well as from private collections to celebrate Wood’s inquisitive mind. Rarely-seen paintings will be joined by diverse metalwork pieces, drawings, and studies to construct a fuller view of Wood’s genius.
