The Des Moines Arts Festival® presented by Nationwide is a professionally juried art show. Each exhibiting artist is selected as a result of a rigorous jury process that is hosted each year in February. The result is 180 professional artists exhibiting their orginal artwork in a beautiful urban street setting surrounding the 4.4 acres John and Mary Pappajohn Sculpture Park and the newly-constructed Krause Gateway Center designed by Renzo Piano Building Workshop. The Festival is a show dedicated to the highest standards of excellence that works diligently to maintain a positive environment for artists and their clients. The Festival is consistently revered as one that places the success of artistry in their core values.
