At Adore Your Walls, we consider The Des Moines Walls Project, which is aimed at bringing more murals to the Des Moines landscape, our passion project. Last month, we were able to bring 5 more murals to the city, with 4 talented artists, in they were all completed in the same 2 weeks! We are so grateful to live in a city that celebrates art, it’s value to the community, and holds some of the absolute best artists. Check out all 5 of the murals and the artists below!

We are obsessed with these geometric wings that people can stand in front of for a perfect photo op.

We love the way shoppers can interact with this mural and make it look like they are holding shopping bags while they are shopping at the Outlets of Des Moines. So fun!
