Grab a 'tool' out of your trunk and make your very own parody of Grant Wood's iconic American Gothic (1930) – the pitchfork painting – in tiny Eldon, about 90 miles southeast of Des Moines. The original house is across from the American Gothic House Center, which interprets the artwork that sparked a million parodies (it even has loaner costumes so you can make your own parody selfie). The actual painting is in the Art Institute of Chicago.
