The “ART HARVEST TOUR” is a studio tour of central Iowa artists to be held annually the last weekend in Sept. Enjoy the beautiful fall weather and scenery as you visit the studios and galleries of the area’s best artists. In addition to enjoying the studios, you’ll see a much wider selection of the artists work (since it doesn’t have to all fit in a van!), with great prices and specials too.
There will be about a dozen stops on the approximately 80 mile loop around the beautiful Des Moines River Valley. A few locations will be hosting multiple artists.This lets us include artists without sufficient studio space to host, as well as keeping the number of stops manageable so you can do the tour in a few hours. Other sights right on the route include the High Trestle Bridge in Madrid, the Hotel Patte in Perry, etc.
