The Grant Wood Studio and Armstrong Visitor Center will be reopening for the season on Saturday, April 14, 2012 at 12:00 p.m. Admission to the Studio is free for everyone during regular Studio hours thanks to a grant from the Esther and Robert Armstrong Charitable Trust.
Grant Wood comes to life in this light-filled, inspirational loft known as the Grant Wood Studio located right here in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Wood lived and worked in the Studio from 1924 through 1935, but his spirit is still very much alive as visitors observe the decorative details and craftsmanship that went into transforming the loft into a studio, performance space, and living quarters. Visitors can stand in the very spot where Wood painted some of his most famous works, including American Gothic (1930). The experience continues with a visit to the nearby Cedar Rapids Museum of Art, which houses the world’s largest collection of artworks by Grant Wood.
Grant Wood Studio hours through December 2013:
Saturday Noon to 4:00 p.m.
Sunday Noon to 4:00 p.m.
The Studio is located at 810 Second Avenue SE, Cedar Rapids, Iowa 52401.
