Event Details

Please join Print Club to celebrate the unveiling of the 2022 Commissioned Print!

Kansas City- based artist Matthew Willie Garcia will join us to talk about his work and his commissioned print. Garcia’s print will be the 29th print commissioned by the Print Club for the Des Moines Art Center collection, Print Club members, and others. Garcia is a printmaker whose work explores ideas of queer quantum mechanics, intersectional existence, and speculative/science fiction identity narratives through color abstraction and nonrepresentational forms. His work was recently featured in the Art Center’s “Immersive” exhibition. After the unveiling, enjoy tamales and other Central American food. Print Club members will be given tickets at no cost that they can exchange for food. Non-Print Club members can purchase food with cash.

The new commissioned print (and past commissioned prints) will be available for purchase in The Shop at the Art Center. Print Club Members receive a 20% discount on all commissioned prints.
