Event Details

Des Moines is home to some amazing artwork, and staying socially distant doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy what the city has to offer! Use this challenge to find your way to some incredible murals in your neighborhood and around Des Moines. Head to each location and snap a selfie and check out each badge for more information about each piece! Share your pics online using the hashtag #DMPLMuralTour
 

How do I find the murals?

Sign up here and create your account and track your progress in the free Beanstack App. Head to the address listed for each badge. You can also plot your route with the help of this map. Whether you walk, drive, bike, or DART you’re sure to find some of these pieces not too far from home.
 

Feeling inspired?

Join us for a Q&A with some of the featured artists on Saturday, April 10 at 2:00 PM. You can also check out video classes on demand with Creativebug, free with your library card!
