ROSE PROJECT // Artist Jess Quinn's collaborative art work

ROSE PROJECT // Artist Jess Quinn's collaborative art work Mainframe Studios | 02/07/2020

Artist Jess Quinn paints floral close-ups, and for First Friday event she shared her love of flowers with the public.

Budding artists of all ages helped Jess Quinn's Rose Project bloom during our February First Friday. Having an expert eye for flowers, she designed a pixilated rose on an oversized canvas. Then, with the help of Jenn Mavin, invited the public to engage with the work by filling in each square with the appropriate color. The work was a resounding success and 100 signatures by participants encircle the work of art.

Jess hopes the collaborative artwork can travel throughout Des Moines, and ideally find a permanent home where those who participated can view it. Currently, the Rose Project is displayed in the fourth-floor common space in Mainframe Studios.
