Tom Milligan/Grant Wood: Prairie Rebel -- In this 45-minute, one-man show, Grant Wood chats with the audience as if talking to an old friend across the backyard fence, or maybe at his home at Five Turner Alley in Cedar Rapids. He tells us about his life and how he changed the art world forever with his work. It is the man behind American Gothic that we hear and see, and the story of how he took the moments, the memories, and the people of our state, and showed the whole world the specialness of this Iowa. After the presentation, the audience is encouraged to ask questions of the actor about Grant Wood and his life.
This event has been made possible by a grant from Humanities Iowa. Humanities Iowa, a state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
