Looks like posters are not available to home schoolers, individually.

Q: Are home schools eligible to apply for Picturing America?

While individual home schools are not eligible to apply, consortia or alliances of home schools may apply for Picturing America materials to place in a common resource center. However, individual home schools are encouraged to visit the Picturing America page at the NEH Web site for free access to program-related resources.

I’ve looked for a poster of this painting for years to no avail…is there any source for someone to purchase this poster?

4. John - July 18, 2008

Sorry I don’t know of a source. If you haven’t already, you might try the Cedar Rapids Museum of Art (319-366-7503). I know they have some Grant Wood posters.
