Overalls All Over - Where Are They Now?

Overalls All Over includes 25 life-sized 6’ fiberglass statues depicting the farmer and daughter from Grant Wood's famous American Gothic painting.

Wood's American Gothic painting is one of the most familiar images in 20th-century American art and painted at 5 Turner Alley in Cedar Rapids. Local artists were paired with sponsoring businesses and organizations to create unique designs for 26 whimsical American Gothic themed statues. Statues were on parade from May through September 2016. While Overalls All Over: A Grant Wood Experience officially ended in September 2016, many of the American Gothic themed statues are still on public display!
