Welcome to Art Week Des Moines 2016 - June 20 - 26

Check out the Many Events already added to the Art Week calendar for 2016. Art Week Des Moines 2015 was a rousing success with over fifty art related events throughout the Des Moines metro area and 2016 is looking to be even bigger and better.

Art week Des Moines encourages different venues, organizations, and businesses to host events during the week leading up to the award winning Des Moines Arts Festival.  The goal is to provide rich programming throughout the week to reach across generations and across art genres.  Art Week Des Moines is a volunteer based effort to showcase the diverse and interesting offerings in Des Moines. 

Through this effort we hope to make Des Moines a happier more interesting slice of the world.…   Lofty goal. Sure. But, well, why aim low ?
