Grant Wood: From Farm Boy to American Icon

Ongoing 

Grant Wood: From Farm Boy to American Icon offers an expansive look at Wood’s life and career though his art. Housed in one of our largest first-floor galleries, this installation reflects the depth of the CRMA’s Grant Wood collection as well as the great breadth of Woods’ career, cut tragically short by his death in 1942.
