M12 Studio unveils a new public art project called SWITCH at the Iowa State Fair —on view through August 21, 2016. Located in the Horse Barn, all ages are invited to explore a collection of equine (horse) objects, images and information, and take away printed materials about equine culture.
During the Iowa State Fair, the images captured in the horse stall will be projected at a store front on the skywalk level of the Capital Square building at 400 Locust Street in downtown Des Moines.
This temporary public art project was commissioned by the Greater Des Moines Public Art Foundation. The commission is part of its ongoing initiative, Project Spaces, which places compelling, temporary works of art in highly visible public spaces.
