Sounds of Art Week, by Trey Reis

The stated mission of Art Week is to encourage broader participation and support of the local art scene, so it only made sense to join up with the Des Moines public piano project, City Sounds. Celebrating its fifth year, City Sounds has once again installed pianos decorated by local artists all around our fair city. The idea is to encourage impromptu performances and the casual soundtracking of Des Moines goings-on by its everyday citizens.

Be a part of the Art Week festivities and hold your own concert anytime at one of these public piano locations:

Raygun – 500 E Grand
