Grant Wood's Corn Room mural

corn room

For the first time since 1992, Grant Wood’s Corn Room mural is shown in its entirety. An exhibition gallery was created in the summer of 2007 in the third-floor H. H. Everist Gallery for long-term display of the mural, while at the same time allowing the remaining Jensen and Terra galleries to be used for changing exhibitions. The special installation of the Grant Wood mural was funded by a donation from Bill Turner.

Overhead, in V-formation
a flock of white pelicans
 flap black-edged wings
like sailboats bobbing
in a choppy sea.
For 30 million years.
pelicans have flown
heavy and low.
Each lands
like a Pterodactyl
to search for fish.
In a U formation.
sixteen pelicans huddle
in shallow water
near a sand bar.
The moon rises
shining the river silver
and the pelicans white.
Here on the high riverbank,
we build a fire, and
sit in a U formation,
looking out at the river.
Our faces golden,
as we listen to the night.
This exhibition presents collaborative works by two South Dakotans, artist Nancy Losacker and poet Norma C. Wilson. They use their different artistic talents to explore their personal appreciations of the landscape of our region. Losacker creates imaginative glass mosaics and Wilson writes poems that together show how nature’s beauty and diversity can reflect our own experiences.
