Plaid Sweater by Grant Wood



Grant Wood’s painting Plaid Sweater will make a special appearance in the Dubuque Museum of Art’s Randall Lengeling Gallery this fall, just in time for football weather. In addition, the original plaid sweater worn by Melvin Blumberg, the boy in the painting, will also be on view. Stop by to catch these two iconic Grant Wood items during their limited engagement in Dubuque!
