One Man Play: Grant Wood – POSTPONED
May 20 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm$20.00
This event is postponed due to the coronavirus public health situation. A new performance date will be announced asap.
Tom Milligan will portray Iowa native Grant Wood during his performance of “Grant Wood: Prairie Rebel.” Admission is $20 per person.
Grant Wood chats with the audience in this one man show, 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 place, Iowa.
After the presentation, the audience is encouraged to ask questions about Grant Wood and his life and view a copy of the famous Henry A. Wallace portrait by Grant Wood used on the cover of “American Dreamer”. A dessert buffet will be served. Because seating is limited, reservations are required.
