Nicole Branstad Interactive Marketing Specialist, Marketing and Communications April 19, 2012Neighborhood gem We are extremely lucky here at Des Moines University to be located in such a great neighborhood. Of course we all have our favorite local spots, but one of my all-time faves is the Des Moines Art Center located just up the street from us.This free art museum contains an impressive permanent collection as well as ever-changing traveling exhibitions. Currently, it has Jackson Pollock’s Mural on loan from the University of Iowa Museum of Art. This is definitely something you won’t want to miss! Mural, Jackson Pollock (April 5 - July 15)On top of all the wonderful paintings and sculptures that you’d expect, they also have an extensive events calendar. A few upcoming events that I’m looking forward to include:April 21: Yoga + Pollock Gallery TalkApril 22: Earth Day @ the Pappajohn Sculpture ParkApril 26: Art CrazyMay 5: Kentucky Derby PartyJune 1: Talk + Live Music “The Coming of Rock & Roll”June 8: Free flicks Leave a Reply Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
