Arts and Culture

A region cannot be world-class without a comprehensive, consistent and fiscally aggressive commitment to the arts as a critical driver of economic, community, tourism, and quality of life development. Greater Des Moines and Central Iowa has demonstrated a sustained dedication to building arts and cultural assets for years; the result is a community with an impressive array of cultural resources for its size. As the Capital Region continues to evolve and mature, taking its arts community and economy to the next level will further enhance the region's competitiveness as a destination for talent, business, and visitors.
