Cedar Rapids, Iowa—The Grant Wood Studio will host its last weekend for the season on Saturday, December 28.

The Grant Wood Studio, also known as 5 Turner Alley, is where famed artist Grant Wood lived and worked from 1924 to 1935. In addition to creating works such as American Gothic in this location, Wood also designed many unique features of the interior space, making it a work of art in itself.

The Armstrong Visitor Center is handicap accessible, but the Studio is not. Free general admission has been underwritten by a grant from the Esther and
