America's Best Cities on the Rise

Cedar Rapids is perhaps best known as the birthplace of the famous American Gothic painting, which was created by Grant Wood in his local studio. You can see the world's largest collection of works by Wood in the Cedar Rapids Museum of Art. After you've had your fill of moody, Midwest-inspired artwork (take note of the corncob chandelier), you can check out a host of new attractions that are revitalizing local tourism.

This amazing shot captures vibrant Autumn colors and the beautiful architecture of the National Museum in Wrocław. It has been established in 1947 and holds one of the largest collections of contemporary art in Poland.

Grant Wood is shown next to the unfinished painting, "Midnight Ride of Paul Revere," at 5 Turner Alley, 1931, Cedar Rapids Museum of Art Archives.
