10 Year Anniversary of American Gothic House Center

Eldon – Come and Celebrate the 10 year anniversary of the American Gothic House Center!


The 10 year Anniversary of the American Gothic House Center will be August 12th, 2017 from 1-3pm.


There will be an exhibit of the construction of the American Gothic House Center up inside the house. The State Historical Society of Iowa will be holding a workshop inside the American Gothic House, Lilies of the Alley miniatures. Grant Wood created found-object sculptures in the shape of potted flowers with whatever he found in the alley behind his home in Cedar Rapids. Participants of the workshop have the chance to create their own Lilies of the Alley miniatures in the American Gothic House. Supplies may be limited, so arrive early to ensure you have a chance to create your own lily. The Workshop is sponsored by the Iowa Arts Council.


There will also be a caricature artist and some music as well as pie! Pie will be donated by many of the lovely ladies in Eldon and Beth Howard will also be here with her pie. Many of the individuals that helped make the dream of the American Gothic House Center a reality will be in attendance.
