Special Exhibition Gallery, 1st Floor

This exhibition of approximately 160 works by artist Grant Wood (1891-1942) places his decorative arts and design work within the larger context of his better-known paintings, drawings, and prints. Works on view include Stone City, Iowa; Midnight Ride of Paul Revere; and Daughters of Revolution. Also on view will be artifacts from his recently renovated studio in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, known as "No. 5 Turner Alley," which was used as a virtual stage and backdrop for some of his most famous paintings, along with heirlooms that served as props.
