If you build it, they will come… And if you build it with a joyful passion for the arts and a focus on sustainability, then add in lots of desirable perks, they will come and have a magical experience!
Enjoy this fun look at the exclusive Silent Rivers VIP Club we created for patrons of the 2018 Des Moines Arts Festival. The Silent Rivers family is so grateful for all the wonderful comments and to everyone who expressed appreciation for our team’s hard work and dedication! Here’s to art and sustainability!

Relishing a stylish and exclusive space
Relax, connect, mingle, fill up and even regroup while taking a take a break from the sun or sprinkles… These are the wonderful experiences in the Silent Rivers VIP Club for everyone supporting the Des Moines Arts Festival with a tax-deductible patron package.
DMAF Curated exhibit and creative experience
Silent Rivers thanks our 2018 DMAF Curated presenters for leading meaningful conversations on art and culture in the Creative Cafe space inside the Silent Rivers VIP Club. A big shout out to our collaborators and co-sponsors Mars Cafe and Des Moines Arts Festival for helping us bring together this creative experience!
Sustainability brilliance and an alluring garden
As stewards for sustainably, Silent Rivers is deeply engaged in Des Moines Arts Festival efforts to reduce waste. The VIP Club is intelligently designed and built with sustainable materials including repurposed wood, scrap product, old doors and a compressed paper material called Richlite. We even worked with the City of Des Moines to transform cut-down Ash trees into fencing that surrounds the VIP Club. This year’s VIP Club garden was created by Indigo Dawn, Country Landscapes and Allendan Seed Company and featured a sculpture by artist and Silent Rivers founder Chaden Halfhill.
Dancing for joy
We close with this delightful video of our founder and CEO Chaden Halfhill dancing with his son Cedar on Saturday night to the music of Spin Doctors on the HyVee Mainstage. Pure joy!
