“Making the Art Center 1948 – 2023” is a history exhibition that tells the story of the Des Moines Art Center through the people, places, and things that have made this institution what it is today. The exhibition features an abundance of historical images, architectural blueprints of the three historic buildings, a compilation of fast facts and interesting tidbits, a record and aerial view of the Pappajohn Sculpture Park, a timeline of Art Center happenings, major accessions, past directors, and more.
The exhibition was produced by museum education team members Mia Buch and Jill Featherstone, and Graphic Designer Connie Wilson in celebration of the Art Center’s 75th Anniversary in 2023.
