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 results in 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.

As a result of Covid-19, artists who were juried to exhibit at the 2020 Festival are invited to exhibit during the 2021 Festival. As a result, we will not activate our annual jury process as we normally would. Applications for the 2022 Festival will be available October 11, 2021.

The following artists are scheduled to exhibit at the 2021 Juried Art Show presented by Nationwide. Head over to the Gallery Page to connect with artists and buy their work.
