Grant Wood: Prairie Rebel at the Warren Cultural Center April 9 | Entertainment

Tom Milligan brings artist Grant Wood to life on Saturday, April 9 at the Warren Cultural Center in Greenfield Square, starting at 7:00 p.m.

In this 45-minute one-man show, Grant Wood chats with the audience as if talking to an old friend across the backyard fence, or perhaps 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. He’s the man behind American Gothic we hear and see, and the story of how he took our state’s moments, memories, and people to show the world how special this Iowa is. After the presentation, the audience is encouraged to ask questions about Grant Wood and his life.

Not new to Greenfield, Tom Milligan also presented his one-man show “Cartoons and Conservation: A Visit with Ding Darling” as well as the premiere of “American Dreamer: The Life and Times of Henry A. Wallace” in this space before the restoration. .

Tickets are $15 for adults, and students (high school and younger) are free for this and all Locals and Legends 2021-2022 shows. Order tickets at or get them at the door.
