FIRST FRIDAY | The Art of Momentum

Posted on Sep 28, 2018 in Artists, Events, MAINFRAME News


THE ART OF MOMENTUM // Join us in honoring Disabilities Awareness Month with Community Support Advocates (CSA) and their Momentum Art Studio. CSA’s Momentum program recently won the Governor’s Arts Award, recognizing their significant impact on the vitality of the arts in Iowa. Working with artists with disabilities and mental health issues, CSA’s Momentum Art Studio will present a series of experiential art activities highlighting the process of creating and interpreting art with a disability. Artists with disabilities will be also featured during the event, partnering with Drake University students to create an art installation called Wings of Hope in to raise awareness of mental health needs.

As usual with our First Friday events – that’s not all. Enjoy a dynamic Ballet Des Moines pop-up performance with food and drink by The Tangerine Food Company. Then, explore 71 studios of artists working in glass blowing, game development, painting, ceramics, clothing design and much much more!

Thank you to Momentum artist Bill Partridge for the invitation’s featured artwork and Innovize Group for designing it.
