Renovation in Progress

Please pardon our construction!

After nearly 35 years, the Des Moines Art Center is completing a major renovation project on the Meier building patio to ensure its longevity as a part of our architectural collection. There will be no architectural changes to the patio, the project is strictly a refurbishing of the existing structure to maintain the integrity of the building. 

While no public entrances to the building will be affected, visitors may see construction fencing along the north side of the Meier building and the lowest level of the Meier building will be closed temporarily. We expect construction to wrap up in September – thank you for your understanding.
