American Gothic Arrives in Anamosa

ANAMOSA, Iowa (KCRG-TV9) -- 25-foot tall statues of the Grant Wood classic painting "American Gothic" are now towering over Anamosa.

A crane lifted the statues depicting the couple from the famous painting into place Tuesday. Anamosa raised $20,000 to bring the statue to town from Indiana.

The statue stands tall on Main Street between Remley, McQuillen, Willems, & Voss Law Office and Wapsi Physical Therapy.

Grant Wood was born near Anamosa.

It's unclear how long the statue will be in Anamosa but it will likely be there until Spring 2019.
