Gothic Here Too



Stone City Iowa by Grant Wood, Joslyn Art Museum

Stone City is near Wood's childhood home Anamosa. They hold an art festival in Stone City every summer in honor of one of the state's favorite sons. Wood helped to found the Stone City Art Colony there in 1932

An interesting article about a recently published book on Grant Wood.
