Grant Wood Prairie Rebel at Ackerman Winery
August 13 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Saturday, August 13th at 2 pm, actor Tom Milligan will present, “Grant Wood: Prairie Rebel”.
Grant Wood chats with the audience in this 45 minute, 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 Tom questions about Grant Wood and his life.
