Brucemore’s Grant Wood Sleeping Porch: More than a Porch, More than a Painter Jessica Peel-Austin, Manager of Interpretation and Collections, Brucemore
In 2013, Brucemore began the process of conserving and re-interpreting its 1925 Grant Wood sleeping porch. This session will follow the journey that Brucemore staff made – taking the porch from a fragile state at risk of loss to a stable, vivid example of the early work of Iowa’s most famous artist that illustrates how one family’s love of the arts helped a community to develop.
