Travelers along the Grant Wood Scenic Byway experience people, places, and panoramas very similar to those that inspired American painter Grant Wood to create his most iconic art work. hen he was asked to describe how the area he grew up in shaped his work, Grant Wood said “… I’d been told that the Midwest was flat and ugly and I believed it. Later, after I realized the material around me was paintable and started painting out of my own experience, my work had an emotional quality that was totally lacking before.” Visitors traveling along the GWSB have an opportunity to experience some of the same emotions that inspired Grant Wood.
