Looking for a beautiful location for your special event? Rent the Art Center!
We are delighted to have you consider the Art Center for your next special occasion. Imagine hosting your special event in architecturally stunning buildings surrounded by world-class works of art! When you rent the internationally renowned Des Moines Art Center, you are not sharing the space as you might in a hotel or a restaurant. You will experience an entirely private event, revolving exclusively around your vision. To add depth to your experience, we can arrange private tours of the three buildings (designed by Eliel Saarinen, I. M. Pei, and Richard Meier) which house the Art Center’s impressive exhibitions and collections.
The Art Center will make planning your event effortless. We take care of all the details. Each event is custom designed with the budget, venue décor, and food and beverage varying greatly depending on your needs.
The fine print:
- The Art Center does not allow political, religious, or fundraising events.
- All spaces are smoke free.
- No food or drink is allowed in the galleries or Levitt Auditorium.
- The Art Center hosts wedding receptions, but the ceremony must be held off site. The Rose Garden is a popular choice given its proximity, and can be rented through Des Moines Parks and Recreation.
