Terrace Hill Partnership to Present Program about Iowa Artist Grant Wood


Update August 30, 2022: Capacity has been reached, and registration is now closed.

The Terrace Hill Partnership has received funding from Humanities Iowa to host a free, educational presentation entitled Grant Wood: Prairie Rebel. Join us on Tuesday, September 20 at 6:30 p.m. in the Terrace Hill drawing room for this one-man show presented by Iowa actor, Tom Milligan.

In this 45-minute performance, Grant Wood chats with the audience 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 to show the whole world the specialness of this Iowa. After the presentation, the audience is encouraged to ask questions about Grant Wood and his life.

This is a free program, but advance registration is required as space is limited. Register online at or contact Claire Sowder at or 515-281-7205.
