This Week's Events

Ankeny K-12 Art Show      4/20/2014 12:00:00 AM
515-965-0940
1520 SW Ordnance Road, Ankeny
The Ankeny Art Center is pleased to present their annual K-12 art exhibits February 4th through May 3rd. The AAC presents three K-12 exhibits annually including Bondurant, North Polk, and Ankeny Schools. The Ankeny Art Center’s K-12 exhibits are part of our extended outreach programming, intended to introduce and familiarize students with the gallery setting. Familiarizing students with the gallery will bring about individual self-worth of students within the community, increased community involvement; promote culture and diversity, along with the insight of the interworking of becoming an exhibiting artist. The vision is to make creative, unique, and innovative art experiences accessible to every person in the community of Ankeny and surrounding communities. We fully believe that unique art experiences will enrich the lives of the public and teach children how to be better members of the community. Please join us as we celebrate the creativity of the youth in our area. All receptions are free and open to the public.

Shrek TYA      4/25/2014 7:00:00 PM
515-277-6261
831 42nd St, Des Moines
In a kingdom far, far away, things get ugly when an ogre, not a handsome prince, shows up to rescue a feisty Princess. Throw in a wisecracking Donkey, a villain with a short temper, a Gingerbread Man with attitude, and other fairy tale misfits, and you've got a mess that calls for a real hero. Luckily there's one on hand, and his name is Shrek. Shrek TYA is part romance, part twisted fairy tale, and all irreverent fun. "A triumph of comic imagination with a heart as big and warm as Santa's." — USA Today Show Days & Times 7:00 PM Friday 1:00 PM Saturday 1:00 PM & 4:00 PM Sunday (1:00 PM only, Sunday, May 18) Tickets Tickets on sale Oct. 8 Tickets currently on sale to groups $17 Adults/Seniors (62+) $13 Students All persons, regardless of age, must have a ticket.
