Here in Des Moines we are so lucky to have such a thriving creative and artistic community and the culmination of of this group of people happens annually at the Des Moines Arts Festival. This year’s events start Friday and run through Sunday.
The Des Moines Arts Festival features 185 of the nation’s top professional artists and 22 emerging Iowa artists in a juried exhibition of artwork in 14 mediums. Providing guests with the unique opportunity to meet artists from around the world and purchase their artwork, the Des Moines Arts Festival has become a signature event for the community.
Along with one of a kind art, the weekend is also filled with live music, local food vendors, street theatre and even a film festival.
So mark your calendars because this is an event not to miss!
