About Art Week
Group Creatives invites central Iowa artists to join Art Week Des Moines 2022. Submissions are now being accepted for events and projects that will take place June 17 - June 23 in the Columbus Park, Drake/Dogtown, Franklin Area, Oak Park/Highland Park, The Avenues, and Valley Junction neighborhoods. Artists celebrating Pride or Juneteenth are especially encouraged to submit. Events will be held indoors as well and outdoors, and artists can be paired with local venues in each neighborhood. Art Week is open to all interested in showcasing their work among the diverse offering of creative expression growing in Des Moines.
Art Week Des Moines continues as a genre-blending celebration of art and artists in the Des Moines metro anchored by neighborhood host sites. Past events have included art scavenger hunts, artist-built mini-golf, slow motion parades, art talks, plein air painting, gallery hopping, neighborhood takeovers, live mural painting and a coloring book with designs drawn by local artists.
