Grant Wood in Focus: Hunting Grant Wood via Zoom, Free

Dec 17, 2023, 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM


Join CRMA Executive Director Sean Ulmer for this pre-recorded Grant Wood In Focus program in which he spent a little time on a recent trip to Paris seeking out where Grant Wood was when he painted “From the Roman Amphitheatre, Paris” in 1920.  As in past trips to the City of Lights, Ulmer devoted a portion of the trip to tracking down where Grant Wood was when painting certain works of art.  On this trip, Ulmer sought out a relatively unknown location in Paris, the site of an ancient Roman amphitheatre, which Wood used as the backdrop for his painting…or did he?
