Open Studio

This Saturday night from 5-10pm, June 28, I will be hosting an open studio with my studio-mate Robert Reeves during the Des Moines Art Festival. Our studio is located on the top floor of the Fitch Studio Building right next to the festival at the corner of 15th and Walnut. We will have air condition, drinks and new works of art.
Be aware, the street directly in front of the studio building is closed and there will probably be beer trucks parked right outside our front door. So make sure you know where to find us.
