The Des Moines Art Center

The Baer Faxt went on the road this summer to discover great art in unexpected places. In this clip, we sit down with Jeff Fleming, the director of the Des Moines Art Center in Iowa, to talk about quality over quantity when it comes to building a collection. Fleming also discusses the museum's focus on filling the holes in their collection by adding several works by women, LGBTQ+ artists, and artists of color to the collection.
