An All Yards Art Show about playing with #yardwork
For the 6th annual Art Week Des Moines, you are invited to participate in a city-wide art installation. Rainbows, thank you notes to postal workers and teddy bears in windows are visual ways our communities are reaching out to show support for each other. As we practice social distancing, we continue to find ways to be together, apart. Design your #yardwork installation with materials you have handy at home. Coordinate with your neighborhood on a theme, or surprise everyone with your own vision. You could even use your yard as a performance space.
With lots of yards participating, the Greater Des Moines area will be transformed into DSM Emerald City. Driving, walking and biking through neighborhoods will provide unexpected surprises from a safe, social distance. This project is initiated by local artists Rachel Buse and Christopher Chivetta. Both are sculptors interested in working in nature and use material and color to explore meaningful interactions with people.
DSM Emerald City will be promoted for viewing the week of Art Week Des Moines, June 19th-26th. Follow Art Week Des Moines on Facebook and Instagram. Use the hashtag #dsmemeraldcity and #artweekdsm2020 when posting on social media.
Join Art Week Des Moines Friday June 19 - Friday June 26th. Check the schedule to discover all the mostly free and safe-from-a-social-distance art experiences organized for 2020. #artweekdsm2020
