Grant Wood: Rags to Riches

Date:Apr 13th, 2024
Time:10:00am - 12:00pm

Speaker Dr. Randy Lengeling is a native Iowan who grew up in Carroll. This PowerPoint presentation looks at Wood’s personal life story- his artistic development and meteoric rise to international prominence as the leader of Regionalism; his controversial professorship at the State University of Iowa; and his enduring legacy in art history having lived nearly his whole life in Iowa. His story is an inspiration for all Americans, particularly Iowans, and a shining example that world-influencing achievements can occur in this “flyover” state that we call home. Original Grant Wood works may be available for viewing.

This presentation may be more suitable for adults. There are 2 sessions: 10:00 am and 11:00 am. Space is limited to 20 guests per session. To ensure your spot, please preregister by calling the Center at 641-652-3352 or online at MyCountyParks. Walk-ins are welcome on a first come, first served basis once preregistered guests have been seated.

American Gothic House interior will be open 11 AM until 2 PM

The museum gallery will be closed to the public until 12:30 p.m.
