Grant Wood: Prairie Rebel

In this 45-minute, one-man show, Grant Wood, performed by Tom Milligan, 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.
