Americans for the Arts, which serves a network of organizations and individuals, has just released its 2015–2017 strategic plan with a key focus on building recognition for the transformative power of the arts in all of our lives and communities in new ways.

The report cover features High Trestle Trail Bridge, a project by artist David B. Dahlquist and a team of designers from RDG Planning & Design, Iowa.

Located northwest of Des Moines, Iowa, the High Trestle Bridge spans the banks of the Des Moines River Valley and is located between the rural communities of Woodward and Madrid.

The "portals" or vertical elements that form a gateway to the Des Moines River Bridge are sculptural symbols that speak to this geology, the cutting and slicing of nature that forms this river valley.
