ArtFest MidWest

3000 East Grand Avenue
Des Moines, IA 50301

Explore the 15th annual juried fine art event, Iowa's largest fine arts show - ArtFest Midwest ‘The Other Art Show’.
Held the same weekend as the downtown art show, Artfest Midwest features Iowa and regional artists. Over 250 artists participate during the festival, varying in mediums and styles. ArtFest Midwest is an alternative, affordable art show — a complement to the downtown show. 'The Other Art Show' reflects quality similar to that found at the original “Art in the Park” show held several years ago at the Des Moines Art Center (then moved to the Fairgrounds). Patrons with be exposed to the artwork of local and regional artists, as well as selected artists from across the country.
