The Appraisal...

Grant Wood's painting from 1931 can be seen at the Dubuque Museum of Art.  In my upcoming opera, EIGHT WOODS AND A VAN, the painting is brought to life and sung by Jessica Pray (Farmer's Wife) and Jessica Grigg (Banker's Wife) The photo is by Taylor Fiser. Although the women in the picture have a cool, appraising air, in their song, I imagine them as having more in common in their struggles during the Great Depression. Costumes are perfectly done by Kathryn Bowery Huang.
