Lights! Camera! Action!
Celebrate an Oscar® pre-party at the Des Moines Art Center.


Walk the red carpet leading up to the Art Center’s glamorous celebration of the Oscars®
(which is held on Sunday, February 24). Come dressed as your favorite movie star of
past or present, favorite film character, or come as yourself dressed in your best Hollywood
finery — be it elegant or glitzy — make a fashion statement!

Ballots will be available to make your Oscar® predications. Those who predict the most
winners will be notified after the Oscar® ceremony and will be the recipients of fabulous
movie-related prizes. Champagne will flow, hors d’oeuvres will be passed, music will waft
through the lobby, and movie magic will fill the air. Who needs the Vanity Fair party when you
have the Art Center?

Admission $10; members $5

The Art Center will screen the Academy Award® Nominated Live-action Short Films at
6:30 pm in Levitt Auditorium. Admission to the screening is free, but space is limited and
we are currently at capacity. Doors will open one-half hour prior to the screening and
we will start a waiting list for any unclaimed seats at that time.

*Shuttle service will be available between the Art Center and Plymouth Congregational Church
located at 4126 Ingersoll Avenue (just .6 miles from the Art Center). The shuttle service will
run from 7:30 pm until 10 pm.
