The 2017 Microgrant Dinner continues its tradition of connecting arts supporters to central Iowa artists. This casual atmosphere brings five artists, nominated by area stakeholders, to present on their work. Attendees vote, and the winning artist receives a grant from the dinner ticket surplus.

This year’s presenting artists are Edward Kelley, Rachel Merrill, Cat Rocketship, Bob Schulte, and Alyssa Tauber.
