Get Close to Today’s Art

Art Noir is a member group of the Des Moines Art Center. Our mission is to advance the involvement, interest, and participation of adults ages 21-40 in Des Moines Art Center programs; to promote membership and charitable giving to the Des Moines Art Center; and to advocate the role that the arts play in society and enhance the creative community.

The group invites emerging professionals to share their passion for arts and culture. No art history knowledge is required. Art Noir programs are lively and unconventional for all levels of art experience.  Art Noir is a great introduction to contemporary art.

Art Noir hosts four programs annually. Fan favorites include Holiday Studio and After Dark Flashlight Tour (pictured).
