What began as a lighthearted parody Polaroid picture of Barb Bundy-Jost and her husband taken in front of their newly-acquired farmhouse soon blossomed into a full blown "Collection Obsession" with Grant Wood's "American Gothic." Soon, Barb—an art teacher—began to incorporate “Gothic" into her curriculum, urging students to paint their own interpretation of the famous painting by replacing the pitchfork with something that they were passionate about! Not long after, students started to pepper her desk with “American Gothic” parodies. Over the next thirty years, Barb's "American Gothic" collection has grown to contain hundreds of pieces. She'll be sharing the choicest of these fascinating pieces with the public during "Collection Obsession: Barb Bundy-Jost's 'American Gothic,'" on display at Manitowoc Public Library from Tuesday, July 13, through Thursday, September 2. Join us in the celebration of her "Collection Obsession" and walk away with “American Gothic” eyes!

Collector and Aficionado of All Things Wacky & Tacky, Barb Bundy-Jost, will guide attendees through her "Collection Obsession" exhibition on Wednesday, August 4, from 5-6:30 PM, in Manitowoc Public Library’s Balkansky Community Room. Barb will be providing details as to where and how she came to acquire her abundant "American Gothic" collection. She'll also be giving a brief history of Grant Wood's painting and providing gentle guidance for folks to create their own version of the painting, either with a coloring sheet or drawing one on their own.
