The museum has significant collections from several prominent Iowa artists. The 63,000-square-foot (5,900 m2) museum displays temporary exhibitions of contemporary art and hold the world's largest collection of works by Grant Wood and Marvin Cone, works by Mauricio Lasansky and the Riley Collection of ancient Roman portrait busts. The Grant Wood collection includes his paintings “Woman with Plants” and “Young Corn.” In 2002, the CRMA was given the building that houses the original studio of Grant Wood. Located just three blocks from the Museum, the loft studio, known by its fictitious address of 5 Turner Alley, was designed and constructed by Wood, who lived and worked there between 1924 and 1935. It was here that he painted American Gothic (1930)—now part of the collection of the Art Institute of Chicago—and many of his most famous paintings. The Grant Wood Studio is open to the public for guided tours several days per week.
The Marvin Cone collection includes many of his best known landscapes and abstracts. Cone was a collaborator and friend of Grant Wood.
The museum also includes significant pieces by Mauricio Lasansky, Ann Royer, and many others.

Famous quotes containing the word collection:
“Psychobabble is ... a set of repetitive verbal formalities that kills off the very spontaneity, candor, and understanding it pretends to promote. Its an idiom that reduces psychological insight to a collection of standardized observations, that provides a frozen lexicon to deal with an infinite variety of problems.”
—Richard Dean Rosen (b. 1949)
“Its rather grisly, isnt it, how soon a living man becomes nothing more than a collection of stocks and bonds and debts and real estate?”
—John Dos Passos (18961970)
“The society would permit no books of fiction in its collection because the town fathers believed that fiction worketh abomination and maketh a lie.”
—For the State of Rhode Island, U.S. public relief program (1935-1943)
