Metro Arts Alliance will celebrate its 40th anniversary in October 2015.  To commemorate this milestone, the organization is commissioning a piece of public art that symbolizes the vision and values of the organization and that will engage visitors at the Des Moines Arts Festival.  The goal of the project is completion of a work of art to be created at the 2015 Des Moines Arts Festival and sited at the Des Moines International Airport as Metro Arts’ gift to Iowa.  

Metro Arts is inviting artists and artist teams living and working in Iowa to submit their qualifications.  A $500 stipend will be awarded to up to three (3) finalists for the development of design concepts.  For more information and to enter, go to:
