The Microgrant Dinner has a unique ability to directly connect arts supporters with the working artists of Des Moines. In its third year, this event sells out fast, so don't wait to get tickets! Five artists make five-minute presentations on their work. Dinner attendees vote on their favorite. The winning artist immediately receives a grant made from the ticket price. You can learn all about the presenting artists on our Web site.

This year's Microgrant Dinner has been generously underwritten by the Des Moines Arts Festival ®, and received support from Moberg Gallery, Olson Larsen Galleries, Visionary Services, and Beeline + Blue. Chicken Tractor is proud to receive operational support from Bravo of Greater Des Moines.
