Event Details

Join us for the opening celebration of “Underneath Everything.” Featuring artworks that honor the humility of clay while simultaneously evoking a sense of grandeur and possibility, this exhibition celebrates the robust ceramics tradition in Iowa with works by local artists alongside those working nationally and internationally.

Be among the first to view the opening of our newest exhibition, “Underneath Everything.” Guests will enjoy music from classically trained violinist, Hanna Wolle. Complimentary hors d’oeuvres and refreshments will be available by Tangerine at the Art Center, including the evening’s signature cocktail – pomegranate Mojitos. Don’t forget to take a photo in front of the beautiful floral installation by Wild Flower!

This event is free; registration is not required.
