What’s new in 2022?

Thanks to input from artists and other community leaders, the 2022 program concentrates activity and attention on neighborhood activations. The neighborhoods are represented in this map and follow this schedule:

Note: You can certainly activate near or far from these areas; we are still here to lift you up during Art Week.

Note also: Your entry can be aspirational. Tell us where you think you want to be, and Group will work to connect you with potential venues. 

The first step: your submission

For those interested in exhibiting, organizing, hosting or making something during art week, share what’s on your mind by filling out this form, which is open now thorugh April 1 for submissions. Based on your response, we will contact you to explore how best to increase participation and visibility for your work.

Artists celebrating Pride or Juneteenth are especially encouraged to submit.

Thank you for continuing to make Art Week Des Moines a celebration of local artists!
