As a young adult, I finally started to feel the potential that visual arts had in my life. It was an opportune time for something positive to grab me.
What if more students had access to Art? The earlier a child has exposure and real-life experience with Art, the more of a chance the child has to better understand who they are and the world around them.
Having lived in New York City and Seattle prior to taking roots in Des Moines, my appreciation for The Des Moines Art Center is great! Did you know the DMAC is free all year round? The quality of art in the permanent collection is world-class. The curated shows and open lectures are outstanding.
