CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

The Grant Wood Studio in Cedar Rapids has reopened for the season.

Visitors are given the chance to view the loft Wood lived and worked in back in the 1920s.

Tour volunteers say his studio is still alive with decorative details and craftsmanship in the small loft used for performances.

"It tells about his art work and the importance to American Gothic of course to Cedar Rapids and to the whole country," said Karen Schlue, a Grant Wood Studio volunteer.

The season reopening also gives visitors the chance to check out some of Wood's paintings and most famous works.

The studios are open from now until December
