Who’s exhibiting and opportunities for artists

DEADLINE JANUARY 9th: Metro Arts Forte Legacy Project


A $500 stipend will be awarded to up to three (3) finalists for the development of design concepts.  A $10,000 stipend will be provided to the selected Iowa artist/artist team in conjunction with developing the public art project and working with the public in its creation.

What they are looking for:

·       Celebrates the positive impact of the arts in the community

·       Involves the collaborative participation of community members of all ages in the creation process, culminating with the 2015 Des Moines Arts Festival

·       Is fabricated using primarily found and/or re-cycled materials, in keeping with Metro Arts’ “Green Arts” theme

·       Contains an educational component that teaches participants about the medium of creation and/or conservation

·       Is durable enough for long-term exhibition.
