FIRST FRIDAY | The Art of Vinyl

Posted on Apr 15, 2018 in MAINFRAME News


Come celebrate the acclaimed work of Margo Nahas and Jay Vigon. The wife and husband team have created artwork for over 80 album covers. Some include Van Halen “1984”, Prince “Purple Rain”, Fleetwood Mac “Tusk”, Stevie Wonder “The Secret Life of Plants”, and Quiet Riot “Metal Health” (Watch our video).

Margo and Jay are putting together a special exhibition of their career work on our main level. Did we mention Jay also designed the Star Wars Return of the Jedi logo? This First Friday party will be enjoyed by music and movie lovers alike.

City Sounds Unveiling

City Sounds: The Des Moines Public Piano Project will hold a public unveiling in our atrium. View all the freshly painted pianos in one location before they are installed throughout the city. Artist chosen to paint the pianos will be available to discuss their work.

As usual with our First Friday events – that’s not all:

  • Jim Bollard (a.k.a. DJ Jimmy Jim, DJ Uncle Jim & DJ B2M) – Listen to his classic rock playlist in our atrium
  • The Tangerine Food Company – Enjoy a special family-friendly, pop-up menu in store – which always includes vegan options
  • Sarah Noll Wilson Open House – Learn about Sarah’s leadership lab in Studio #407 and why we love her rebel rousing artistry.
