Intriguing New Art Exhibit

Above: Artist Susan Collis brings magic to the everyday: Here, for example, paint spatters on a worn ladder tread are created with precious materials—among them, opal, pearl, diamond, moonstone, white howite and coral.

A new exhibit—”Susan Collis: Without You the World Goes On”—opens Saturday, Jan. 26, at the Des Moines Art Center, supported in part by a $100,000 multiyear programming grant from the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.

The gift will support exhibitions, the commission of new works of art, publications, and community programming associated with the shows.

“In addition to being an important regional museum with a strong collection of modern and contemporary art, the Des Moines Art Center is also very much a site where artists and audiences come together to discuss the issues and urgencies of our time,” notes Rachel Bers, program director at the Warhol Foundation. “We are very pleased to support its ambitious exhibition program that draws attention to positions and practices that have traditionally been marginalized in the contemporary art world.”

In addition to the Collis exhibit, which runs through May 12, the grant will also support these upcoming shows:

• “For Today I Am a Boy: Contemporary Queer Abstraction,” June 1 – Sept. 8
• “Monument Valley,” Oct. 5 – Jan. 12, 2020
• Karla Black, Feb. 8 – May 17, 2020
• Justin Favela, June 13 – Sept. 13, 2020
