The Artists Sunday Alliance is a movement to support local artists on the Sunday after Thanksgiving.
The City of Des Moines Arts Commission announced that it has joined the Artists Sunday alliance, and that it will promote local artisans and craftspeople on Artists Sunday, which is celebrated on November 29, the Sunday after Thanksgiving. Artist Sunday, falling between Black Friday, Small Business Saturday® and Cyber Monday, is a day dedicated to encouraging consumers to shop with artists and give something special, unique, and hand? crafted this holiday season. The Des Moines Arts Commission appreciates the culture artists create and the impact they have on our local community, while adding expression and beauty to our lives. Artists from across the country are participating in Artists Sunday, representing a full range of art, handcrafted items, and performances. The diversity of artisans allows consumers to ‘shop art’ this Artists Sunday and give something personal and meaningful this holiday season. The Des Moines Arts Commission has committed to providing artists in our city a platform to promote their work. In addition, it will feature those artists on the Des Moines Arts Commissions website and social media platforms.
