Student Art Exhibition

Hubbell Homes, Des Moines Art Center and Des Moines Arts Festival® are proud to host the Student Art Exhibition (SAE). The SAE is a program that spotlights the creativity of children K-12 attending schools in central Iowa through special exhibitions of their work at the Festival and Des Moines Central Library.

Students’ artistic achievements are recognized in a special exhibition on-site at the Festival; at the Visionary Artist Ceremony at the Festival on June 23 at 11:30 a.m.; Student Art Exhibition Reception at the Des Moines Central Library on August 30 at 6 p.m.; and reward them with a Medallion and Des Moines Art Center Household Membership. In addition, participating teachers each receive a household membership to the Art Center and a chance to win one-of-five $250 awards in art supplies.

The application process for 2018 will open in the new year. All schools will be contacted with a letter explaining the program and how to get involved. If you did not, or have further questions, please contact Dani Schmaltz at dschmaltz@desmoinesartsfestival.org.
