Fruits by Grant Wood

The American Gothic House Center in Eldon is hosting an exhibit opening for “Fruits,” their recently acquired the Grant Wood Lithograph. The exhibit opens on Friday, April 4, from 5 to 7 p.m. at the center. Admission is free.

In his last few years of work, Grant Wood turned his focus to the print medium. Fruits is an important piece of that work. View the work and learn about the history behind this series of lithographs and its relationship to the Great Depression.
