2024 Art Week Fellows Program

Selected artists will be invited to help lead Art Week Des Moines in 2024. The fellowships are a way to invest in local, community-focused artists leading the creation of new work in one of Art Week’s neighborhoods – a focal point for activating artists and building a sense of belonging for neighbors. What this means and where this goes is very much open to discussion, which is why we’re inviting artists with a variety of working styles and diverse backgrounds.

Artists invited to this program will have a proven ability to engage with the community through their work. The expectation is that artists will see this experience as an opportunity to be inventive with their approach, explore new modes of bringing people together, and celebrate neighborhoods.
