Bring a sack lunch and settle in for the story of a 1940 Hollywood art happening in which nine Associated American Artists created twelve paintings. That Hollywood commission was the largest of Grant Wood’s career, and resulted in perhaps his least-known painting. Whether you’re a Grant Wood enthusiast or just a fan of classic Hollywood films and movie stars, you’ll love this presentation from Sandra Lee Hudson.

Sandra Lee Hudson was awarded an  Authors Grant by the The State Historical Society of Iowa to research Grant Wood & Hollywood.
