Congratulations to Jack Coyier and Brian Abeling (a former local artist featured at Genus) for their photography in the Des Moines Art Center Exhibition titled "Community Photography Showcase: Street Photography." A Community Celebration was held on Thursday night where it featured Coyier, Abeling, and other local artists. The Exhibit is in concert with the exhibition "Vivian Maier: Through a Critical Lens" and will be open to the public through January 3rd. Check out photos from the Exhibit here!
