Sketch Nite

Sketch Nite promotional image

Experienced, aspiring, and amateur artists alike: this summer, make our museums your muse.

Join us in one of our magical gallery spaces after-hours with other artists in your community. Our collections make excellent subjects for sketching because they're always perfectly still! Oh, and did we mention air conditioning...summer in Iowa, right? 

This program is designed for adult participants but everyone is welcome!  Admission is free. Advanced registration not required.
