DSM City Ride - Art Week

It's Art Week! Join DSM City Ride as they celebrate the amazing Des Moines art scene. 

Meet at the Des Moines Social Club to check out the Plein Aire Reception and Auction. Artists have 48 hours to get outside, somewhere in Des Moines, and paint what they see. Guests will be able to purchase their favorite paintings via a closed bid system at the reception. 

At 6:15pm you'll hop on your bike and ride through Water Works Park to the Art Center, where docent Mia Farrell will do a brief 15 minute talk on one of the outdoor sculptures.

We'll make our way back downtown, and end with an after party hosted byArt Terrarium! Screen print your very own City Ride t-shirt, with help from us, and have a drink while exploring Art Terrarium's unique collection of art, pottery, and plants.

City Ride is free and open to riders of all abilities!
