Des Moines Art Center & Pappajohn Sculpture Park

This fall, our PCM 4th graders were able to visit the Des Moines Art Center and Pappajohn Sculpture Park (transportation paid for by the Des Moines Art Center - so PLEASE visit the art center as a family, and while you're there, tell them what a WONDERFUL thing they are doing by providing the opportunity for these kids to take a field trip there).  I recently read a Huffington Post article about the benefit of just ONE trip to an art museum - seeing the actual artwork of Keith Haring, John Singer Sargent, Edward Hopper, or Georgia O'Keefe - the one they actually touched with their own hands, and not just a reproduction - is something really special, and it's all right there in Des Moines!
