Grant Details

Bravo Greater Des Moines offers financial support to its local government partners for new public art plans and projects that generate more artistic and cultural expression in Greater Des Moines. Bravo defines “public art” as semi-permanent or permanent artwork that is free and accessible to the public and enhances and activates spaces in new and dynamic ways. Public art projects may be stand alone, integrated or applied installations. Priority will be given to projects that meaningfully involve both artists and the community intended to experience the artwork in design and development and projects which are unique to the individual community.
