1 question for DSM Art Club:
Q: “What’s your favorite part about doing business on The Avenues?”
A: “When DSM Art Club was merely an idea, a central location within the Des Moines metro was a major component in planning. Both Ingersoll and Grand Avenues are main veins of the city and the businesses here provide arts, food and culture you can find nowhere else within Des Moines.”
