Bankers Trust Participates in Art Week Des Moines, Unveils Its Iowa Artists Collection

Traveling collection includes 12 works by artists living and working in Iowa.

Des Moines, Iowa (June 18, 2019) – Bankers Trust has unveiled a 12-piece collection of works by artists who live and work in Iowa. The Bankers Trust Iowa Artists Collection was created to promote and support culture and the arts in Central Iowa. This is the bank’s second Iowa Artists Collection – the first was introduced in 2016. The latest collection made its debut Tuesday, June 18, during a private event in Des Moines.

The collection includes works from artists Christopher Chiavetta, Catherine Dreiss, Fred Easker, Kim Hutchison, Annick Ibsen, Mirza Kudic, Mary Muller, James Navarro, James Ochs, Chris Vance, Jordan Weber and Molly Wood.

Bankers Trust invites the public to view the collection during Art Week Des Moines, June 24-28, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., in the Ruan Center lobby, 453 7th Street in Des Moines.

Following Art Week Des Moines, the collection begins a 24-month tour of Bankers Trust branches, with each piece spending two months in each of the bank’s 12 Central Iowa locations, including Ames.

“We are excited to introduce this impressive collection and support Art Week Des Moines,” said Don Coffin, CEO and President of Bankers Trust. “The Iowa Artists Collection is one of many ways Bankers Trust promotes cultural activities that enhance the quality of life in Central Iowa. We look forward to sharing the collection with our customers and the community over the next two years.”
