"Grant Wood's 125th Birthday"

Commemorate the 125th birthday of Grant Wood (1891–1942) and get a glimpse into what “Just Living” meant for Iowa’s most famous artist. The theme is particularly relevant to understanding and appreciating a painter who both devoted his career to celebrating just living in his art, especially ordinary day-to-day life in midwestern farms, small towns, and cities, and responded in a variety of ways to issues of social justice during the era of the Great Depression.
