Metro Arts Alliance provides a wide variety of programs at low or no cost that bring the arts to where you are. From Jazz in July, to our Arts Education Programs, to artAbility, we truly offer something for everyone. Our programs enrich our community through arts and culture experiences that benefit everyone!
The event includes a cocktail and heavy hors d’oeuvres reception, silent auction, fashion show and the presentation of the AWE (Art Within Everything) Awards.
Our programs ensure that the arts are part of a complete education. Beyond nurturing artistic talent, the programs also help develop critical thinking skills necessary to a child’s future success, and build future audiences who will sustain arts appreciation.
For more than three decades, Metro Arts Jazz in July is the city’s longest-running concert series that engages area residents in new music, while promoting Iowa musicians and the American legacy and art form of jazz. Many of the concerts now include food vendors, artists selling their work, and hands-on arts activities for children, turning each concert into a community festival celebrating live, outdoor jazz.
