2015 marked the 40th anniversary of Metro Arts Alliance. We’ve come a long way since our beginnings as the Arts and Recreation Council of Greater Des Moines. The initial mission to serve as an umbrella agency for arts, humanities, recreational, and educational organizations has evolved into an organization that connects people to the arts through programming, communication, and support of artists and arts organizations.
We celebrated the culmination of the 40th anniversary of Metro Arts Alliance at the Forte Celebration on October 3, 2015. Guests enjoyed vignettes of the arts and American Enterprise’s excellent modern art collection. We celebrated the diverse groups of people who have made Metro Arts Alliance a vital and vibrant cornerstone of the Des Moines art scene, and acknowledged the valuable contributions of our many partners in the fulfillment of our goals during our storied forty-year history.
