The Des Moines Art Center will open its new exhibit, “Immersive,” this Friday with a celebration beginning at 5 p.m. Refreshments will be served, and at 6 p.m. Director Jeff Fleming will give remarks.

Featuring artists Matthew Willie Garcia, Ran Hwang, Oyoram and Bill Viola, “Immersive” will be experiential, inviting visitors “to be literally immersed in artworks,” Fleming told dsm magazine. “[You’ll] follow a path from darkened space to darkened space, each filled with light, color and sound.”

“Immersive” not only promises to stir your emotions, Fleming says, but to provide “a place to step fully into the art.” The exhibit runs through June 5.
