Visit the Iowa State Fair and experience a new public art installation by Paintallica. The installation is located in the courtyard of the Jim and Patty Cownie Cultural Center.
Meet members of the Paintallica during an informal conversation at 1:30PM this Saturday, 16 August 2014.
Paintallica’s installations are improvised and largely specific to each site. For the Iowa State Fair project, images from past state fairs and Iowa history produced the starting point. The direction emerge on-location in the days leading up to Fair opening. Working on this project are 13 nationally and internationally accomplished artists — many with Iowa roots.
It’s all part of the Greater Des Moines Public Art Foundation’s initiative to engage visitors to the Fair with temporary and performance art.
