There’s a new club in town we think you’ll want to join: Salon 4700, the Des Moines Art Center’s new member affiliate group.

Learn about the group at a launch party Nov. 11 at the Art Center (4700 Grand Ave.) at 6 p.m. The event will include cocktails, light hors d’oeuvres and a discussion led by Art Center Director Jeff Fleming on a rarely seen print from the vault. In addition, “an original and exciting program will be revealed,” promises Amanda Reynal, president of the group’s newly formed board of directors.

Membership is $100 and is open to all active Art Center members at the contributor level ($110) or above. Salon 4700 members will visit artists’ studios, tour private collections and take art-focused trips with Fleming and Art Center curators, among other exclusive activities. While offering “social opportunities as a byproduct of attending our events, (Salon 4700) will delve deeper into many exciting aspects of today’s art world, both locally and further afield,” Reynal says.

Find out more about Salon 4700 hereRSVP for the launch party by emailing salon4700@desmoinesartcenter.org or calling 271-0327 by Thursday, Nov. 6. If you can’t attend but are still interested in joining, email Jenna Ekstrom, jekstrom@desmoinesartcenter.org.
