Who cares about Art, anyways?
Last winter, fellow jurors and Brent met for several days to make decisions on this year's Des Moines Arts Festival Artists. It's coming around the corner, indeed...

Greetings! I write about the business behind this art business. Also found on www.thedetoxartist.com.
Much like Artists, nonprofits rely on private funds. And also the same, both contribute to society in ways that touch us on a uniquely human level. We commit to do our part...our studio is donating 10% of art sales to Community Support Advocates' Momentum Art program. You gotta get to know this organization! And you can!
But we need YOU, our community, to show us you want more cultural events. And by this request, I mean buy artwork, (yes, I just asked) attend or share our events, and ask yourself how can you be a patron of the Arts and make an impact larger than the artwork on your living room wall? This is the time...final days.
We'd love to hear from you on social, email, phone, and in person.

Empowering Iowans to build and sustain culturally vibrant communities by cultivating creativity, participation & learning in the arts.
So a chef, an artist and a musician walk into a bar . . . and you’re invited.
That’s the idea behind Three Dish Night, a feast for the senses set for June 25 at the new Bistro Nomad, with views of the iconic “Nomade” in the Pappajohn Sculpture Park. It’s part of Art Week Des Moines, and its creators — the French-born chef David Baruthio behind Baru 66, artist Brent Holland, and jazz pianist John Krantz — hope the night will be even greater than the sum of its parts.
Each element will riff on another in a swirl of creativity.
So did you hear that? That’s the sound of synergy, people. Did you smell that? That’s the fragrance of fusion.
