American Gothic House Center 10th anniversary celebration Saturday

Aug 07, 2017

ELDON — Celebrate the 10-year anniversary of the American Gothic House Center 1-3 p.m. Saturday.

An exhibit of the construction of the American Gothic House Center will be set up.

The State Historical Society of Iowa will be holding a workshop, “Lilies of the Alley miniatures,” inside the American Gothic House. 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 have the chance to create their own Lilies of the Alley miniatures. Supplies are limited. The workshop is sponsored by the Iowa Arts Council.

A caricature artist and music will be at the celebration.

Eldon women and former American Gothic House resident Beth Howard have donated pie.

Many people who helped make the dream of the American Gothic House Center a reality will attend.
