Cedar Rapids to rededicate Grant Wood window

Posted:

CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -- A newly restored glass window by artist Grant Wood will be rededicated by the city of Cedar Rapids.

The stained glass window was originally designed and installed by Wood in the Veterans Memorial Building.  The Veterans Memorial Commission will hold the ceremony July 4 at 1 p.m.  The event will include several public officials speaking and a performance of a one-person play by Hanna Ackerman of Cedar Falls.

The Cedar Rapids Museum of Art also plans to display the complete set of original drawings for the window.  The assembled drawings measure 24 by 20 feet and are Wood's largest drawing.
