weekly art forecasts from Central Iowa

Who’s exhibiting and opportunities for artists

We are excited to announce that we are currently accepting submissions for the third edition in the Re:Birth Art Exhibition series! The event will be held at ISU’s Design on Main Gallery October 30th - November 8th with performance portions at DGs Tap house and we would love to share your work!
We plan to incorporate 2D and 3D visual art, A/V art, installation, digital and analog music composition, spoken word and live music presentations.
For submissions we would like a photo of the piece along with: -Artist -Title -Media -Dimensions -Price (if it’s for sale)
Submission deadline is Tuesday, October 20th, we will be notifying artists and scheduling drop off/pick up times the day following. This show is paid for out of pocket by a select few volunteers and this time around we will claim ten percent commission on any piece sold to help cover our own expenses, pieces will not be insured but we will take all reasonable measures to see that work is properly cared for. Please include any hanging/display specifications if needed. 2-D work must be hang-ready!!! Hanging wire is preferable but saw tooth hangers will be acceptable.
Our goal is to provide a venue for all interested Central Iowan artists. With Re:Birth we want to foster a constructive atmosphere; to have up-and-coming artists (who may not have the means to enter more expensive exhibitions) present their work alongside peers of all varying talents and professions. But mostly, we want to facilitate a broad and inclusive conversation about art that will encourage people to contribute as much as they can to the artistic community.
Please send submissions along with any questions to:
Garrett J Adams and Johnathan Fusco at: or by phone: (515) 231-4583
