Group Creatives invites central Iowa artists to participate in Art Week Des Moines on June 17-23, 2022.
The form at https://artweekdesmoines.com/submit/ is open now through April 1 for submitting events and projects.
In its eighth year, Art Week focuses on Columbus Park, Drake/Dogtown, Franklin, Oak Park/Highland Park, The Avenues, and Valley Junction neighborhoods. Artists celebrating Pride or Juneteenth are especially encouraged to submit.
Art Week is 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.
Events will be held indoors as well and outdoors, and artists can be paired with local venues in each neighborhood. Art Week is welcome to all interested in showcasing their work among the diverse offering of creative expression growing in Des Moines.
