limited space

Rooftop Art Show & Dance Party

No Cover Charge | Light fare provided | BYOB 21+

We have an indoor party room so you will be cozy regardless!! Rain or shine we have got you covered.

Come to see some of the best artists in Des Moines from one of the best vantage points downtown—The Des Moines Building’s Rooftop Lounge—and then dance the night away with DJs Lyndrum ( and Rock Paper Scissors.

The limitations we face are often the genesis of creativity, and that is the idea Limited Space was born from. In the spirit of this creativity, artists have been limited to less than 25 square feet of display space to push them to find a new approach to show their work.
