We’ve just added a few titles to our Grant Wood collection. If you live in Iowa, your favorite Regionalist artist should be Grant Wood, while you can find Grant Wood’s work around the Cedar Rapids area everywhere from the stained glass window in the Veterans Memorial Auditorium to the Art Museum, you can also find him on the shelves of the library. These titles are housed in Cedar Rapids, but you can request them to be delivered to any of the other centers at any time. You might especially enjoy the two children’s titles.
