About the Fine Arts Series

The St. Mark Fine Arts Series started  as a way for St. Mark to reach out to the greater Des Moines community while simultaneously providing world-class fine arts experiences. Additionally, all fine arts events are free of charge, although freewill donations are accepted in order to enhance and expand the fine arts series. All events for the St. Mark Fine Arts Series are held at St. Mark Lutheran Church in West Des Moines, Iowa.
