Chicken Tractor is proud to announce its contribution to Art Week Des Moines, a one-night exhibit of work by four of Iowa’s most talented artists. These Iowa artists’ works are deeply engaged in the relationship between predator and prey, honoring the lives and deaths of Iowa’s wildlife with work describing the alertness required for survival and the artifacts and environments created by human violence.

The exhibit features work by Heidi Wiren Bartlett & Kt Marie Scarcello, Larassa Kabel, Lee Emma Running and Jessica Teckemeyer.

Performances begin at 7:00PM
