Events this Week

Here are some events happening this week (and would be appropriate material for your required review). If you know of other art events going on, feel free to post.

Friday Sept. 12 Bill Viola at the Des Moines Art Center

and also in Des Moines on the same night ( I copied this from Van's blog and put it on ours):

Resident Artists are please to present Low Brow Elite, a new show featuring a collection of up and coming local artists working outside the realm of the inside art world. Low brow art is usually used to describe an underground movement. What starts out as a movement becomes a trend and then somehow loses its purity or becomes sold out. Resident artists beg the question: If this is art for the people, why are you trying to put it on a pedestal?
