Free Flicks: The Wizard of Oz

8/3/2017 / 9:00pm - 11:00pm

Dinner and a movie at the art center

After you stroll through the Art Center's collection, enjoy an internationally inspired meal from our exclusive food truck partner, Curbin’ Cuisine. They specialize in fresh globally-inspired food that feeds your body and soul, served from their big green truck. Curbin' Cuisine will be serving up delicious bites beginning at 6 pm until the movie begins.

Pre-Film Event: Guided Architecture Tour (8 – 8:30 pm)

Follow, follow, follow, the docent! Get up close and personal with the three wizards of architecture, who designed the Des Moines Art Center—Eliel Saarinen, I. M. Pei, and Richard Meier—through a tour of the grounds. It might not be Oz, but it is pretty close. Feel free to bring your beer or wine along for this fun, informal tour.

Attendees are encouraged to bring lawn chairs, blankets, and refreshments.

All films begin at dusk (approximately 9 pm). In the event of rain, the film will be canceled.

This film is presented as part of the Art Center's 2017 Summer on the Hill.
