There will also be drinks, live music from Brian Congdon (a Tunes on the Terrace favorite) and Quartet 515, plus a live and silent auction. All proceeds will support Easter Seals Iowa and people living with disabilities, to help them not only survive, but thrive in the community. Learn more and purchase tickets here.

Art at the Café: The Looking Dress: May 1-July 31

Local artist, Mary Jones, finds art all around her and can often be found taking long walks with no particular place to go. She does this to experience her surroundings without a script involved. She snaps photos, takes notes, and collects neighborhood facts along the way. It’s with these items that she creates her looking dress, which will be on display at Café Baratta’s.

Where: Café Baratta’s (3rd floor of the State Historical Museum, 600 E Locust St., Des Moines, 600 E. Locust St., Des Moines)

When: The exhibit runs from May 1-July 31
