Over the past two years, the Riverview Artist Salon has hosted 11 salon events in Des Moines. Bringing together musicians, writers, speakers, and artists, these salons serve to highlight the common areas between local cultures and communities.
Art Week’s Riverview Artist Salon 12 will feature music from the Molly Brandt Band. Brandt, a Drake University Music graduate, has spent her post-grad years advocating for increased access to local music while bringing her take on mid-20th century jazz and R&B traditions to non-traditional music venues around the city.
In keeping with the Art Week theme of broadening the scope of venues and participation in the local arts, it’s fitting to have the Molly Brandt Band providing the musical entertainment for Salon #12. Additional presentations that night from author, John Domini, FACE coordinator, Matt Kargol, and artist, Rachel Buse.
