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.

Before anything else, I want to congratulate all people behind #ArtWeekDesMoines2019 because of its success! There are thousands of people who care about art and it's not a dying industry! There is always something new that is being presented every time there is an art week that's why we need to be happy because we are surrounded not only by talented but passionate artists as well. I don't have a talent when it comes to art, but I always look forward every time there is an exhibit in town!
