In June, Ballet Des Moines welcomed our first artist-in-residence, Jami Milne. We launched this artist-in-residence program because we believe inspiration comes from both within our walls and outside of them. This innovative program provides an opportunity for local artists to be inspired, explore and create projects which we believe, will create inspiration to the artist, our ballet and our city.
We're eager to have Jami create with us through our season premier of Triple Bill, this October. Check back for behind the scenes photos from her residency, commentary on her thought process for her residency project and upcoming dates including an artist showcase event and future application information.
For more information regarding this program, contact Executive Director Laurel Knox.
A heartfelt thank you to our generous donors who helped make this program a reality: Connie Wimer, John Pappajohn and the Iowa Arts Council.
