Every home needs art and everybody deserves to be inspired by art! At this month’s home shows in Des Moines and Ames, Silent Rivers will be there to inspire you with our “art of building”.
Des Moines Arts Festival will display art in our booth where you can enter to win a VIP package to this summer’s award-winning Festival… and even win a signed and numbered Chris Vance collector’s poster!
Silent Rivers believes in the importance of art in our daily lives to uplift and inspire. We proudly sponsor the award-winning Des Moines Arts Festival by creating the Silent Rivers VIP Club each summer. This exclusive spot is a beautifully — and sustainably — designed area where Festival patrons can relax and socialize in comfort, enjoying great views of the stage and complimentary food and beverages.
The VIP package giveaway includes:
- 2 passes for exclusive access to the Silent Rivers VIP Club throughout the June 28-30, 2019 Festival
- Valet parking
- Framed — and signed — commemorative poster
- Complimentary drinks and light buffet
- Package hold for any art you purchase
- Express lane service
- Swag bag and more!
And here are the three February home shows where, at each, you can enter to win at the Silent Rivers booth…
Iowa Events Center
See us at the Iowa Events Center for the Des Moines Home + Garden Show. We’ll be among 400+ exhibitors you can visit. You’ll want to also stop by the Feature Gardens to see the latest gardening trends and talk with landscapers. This year’s Home & Garden Show also includes presentations featuring HGTV celebrities.
Hansen Agricultural Center
The following weekend, we’ll be at the Jeff & Deb Hansen Ag Student Learning Center on Mortensen Road for the Ames Home + Garden Show. For those whose epicenter is closer to Ames than Des Moines, you can get primed for spring by talking with a variety of contractors, builders and realtors. And good news! This is now a free event.

Also enter to win this Des Moines Arts Festival poster by Chris Vance!
In addition to the Des Moines Arts Festival VIP package giveaway, you can enter the drawing for this collector’s edition poster by beloved Des Moines artist Chris Vance!
Signed, numbered and framed, this poster was so popular it’s no longer available for purchase.
Every summer, Des Moines Arts Festival commissions an artist to create a commemorative poster. These highly valued works of art often sell out. This 2017 poster by Chris Vance celebrates his downtown mural on the Ford Garland building completed the same year, which was also the 20th anniversary of the Des Moines Arts Festival.
Making this poster even more desirable, it features a raised relief.
Stop by the Silent Rivers booth to chat with us about your home project and enter to win!
