A visit to Pappajohn Sculpture Park in Des Moines, Iowa

Over the holidays I travelled back to my home state of Iowa (go Cyclones!). While there, I had the pleasure of visiting the new Pappajohn Sculpture Park in Des Moines. To be honest, I wasn’t expecting much–Iowa isn’t exactly known as an art mecca. However, I was thrilled to find that the park is filled with pieces from some of the art world’s biggest names–Louise Bourgeois, Barry Flanagan, Deborah Butterfield, and Yoshitomo Nara, among many others. It was actually the highlight of my trip.
