The Des Moines Art Center is both brash and proper, exhibiting a new work in one room that, to some, seems like chaos and then in another room you will find only the classics.
Many of the paintings are in the permanent collection but there is always a new "traveling" exhibit.
The building and grounds are lovely.
Make sure you plan to eat at the cafe. The food is delicious.
The gift shop is remarkable.
The Art Center opens at 11am and is Free.
