WDMCS Art Educators Create Mural for Westridge Bike Path (05/28/2021)

May 28, 2021 | West Des Moines Community Schools (WDMCS) art educators Jim Cook, Tory DeVries, Christie Engelbert, Chelsea Hayes, Katie Leeper, Stephanie Nelson, and Sarah Petersen recently completed a colorful new mural for the WDMurals project. 

The West Des Moines Public Arts Advisory Commission and Parks and Recreation Department on March 1, 2021, invited Iowa artists to submit mural proposals to participate in a new WDMurals public art exhibit. The educators learned in April that their proposal had been selected.

"Our concept was interacting with nature," art curriculum lead Petersen said. "Passersby are encouraged to pose with different elements in the design."

WDMurals is a temporary, outdoor exhibit, and this mural will be viewable along the Westridge bike path until March 31, 2022. Don't miss your chance to see it!
