Grant Wood: 
Imagination Isles

While he was a teacher in the 1920s, Grant Wood created a mural with his students called Imagination Isles. Based on the artist’s original design and paint colors, Whitney teens re-created this mural for the exhibition Grant Wood: American Gothic and Other Fables. The teens, along with curators Barbara Haskell and Sarah Humphreville, examine this project and the power of imagination in Wood’s work.

The Whitney is offering free admission to furloughed Federal employees with appropriate ID.
