Seven can’t-miss food & entertainment events

Art Week 2022 takes over Des Moines June 17-23.

If you’re looking to find art and entertainment specific to the Des Moines area, there’s never been a better time than now to find it.

Art Week Des Moines returns from June 17-23, not only coming back in full force for the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic, but with more events than ever.

“The first year there were like seven events and that’s grown to as much as 80 events in a week (this year),” said artist Rachel Buse. “So it really needed more hands-on-deck.”

Buse, a local sculptor, helped organize Art Week in past years. As the annual event has continued to expand, though, Buse found herself in need of outside help.

That’s where Teva Dawson and her team at Group Creative Service come in. The organization helps get artists involved in community events and turns public spaces into art.
