    Ep 72 Grant Wood Regionalist Artist

    in History

    "American Gothic," the frequently parodied painting of the old couple (really father and daughter) standing in front of a white farm house with a gothic style window holding a pitchfork, is one of the most recognizable paintings in the world. You know the painting, but what do you know about the artist? Wood was one of the school of Regionalist painters, but his art ranged from recycle art to murals to stain glass. Wood was born and raised and returned to work in Iowa. Tune in to learn about Wood's life, his art, his Iowa connections, and a new display coming to the Cedar Rapids Museum of Art.

    If you've already listened to this week's episode of WIIM Radio, you'll have already noticed a bit of a hole in the middle of the show.

What we've got here is this week's WIIM Radio Prospects Report. 



    In this report, Michelle runs down the Griffins' relative return to health and what kind of an affect those injuries have had on the team in the standings lately, since the Griffins have had kind of a roller coaster season so far.
    Vili Saarijarvi and the odd case of a bad Flint Firebirds team, along with the odd case of his juniors eligibility and potential for next season.
    Svechnikov is hot since returning from the World Juniors. We like hot.
    Joe Hicketts and his impact on the Victoria Royals
    Dominic Turgeon's offensive growth
    Axel Holmstrom's dominance in Sweden
    Ehn and Vahatalo
    Listener Questions: Mantha/Bertuzzi callups? What's the future for Frk?

    Colorado Rapids Thugcast: Episode 60

    in Soccer

    The 2014 FIFA World Cup has officially kicked off! Brazil and Croatia played a game that could best be described as 'ruined completely by the referee' to start things off today, and Ben and myself will surely have a few words about that one, along with the rest of the WC and our predictions for the US Men's National Team.


    Besides that, the Rapids lost a match against FC Dallas last weekend that we'll get around to, and there might be some time for Open Cup chat as well? Who knows anymore with us.
