    Cedar Rapids Museum of Art

    CRMA01The Cedar Rapids Museum of Art (CRMA) recently opened The Grant Wood Studio & Visitor Center, the original studio where American artist Grant Wood lived and worked from 1924 through 1934.  The loft studio was designed by the artist himself and was where the legendary American Gothic was painted.

    In honor of its 100 year anniversary, The Cedar Rapids Museum of Art will celebrate with the opening of a major exhibition, Grant Wood At 5 Turner Alley, September 10 through December 4, 2005 at the Grant Wood Studio.  The original American Gothic will return to its birthplace along with other Grant Wood paintings and decorative works on loan from museums and private collections from around the world.  These pieces combined with more than 170 works of art from the Cedar Rapids Museum of Art come together to form the most comprehensive Grant Wood collection to date.

    In 2003, the CRMA received a Silos & Smokestacks grant to preserve the Grant Wood Studio and develop educational programs, interpretation and marketing.  The Grant Wood Studio & Visitor Center is owned and operated by the nearby Cedar Rapids Museum of Art, which houses the world’s largest collection of Wood’s art.  Please visit for more information.
