Who We Are
The Southwest Iowa Art Tour is a grassroots event hosted by a group of artists from throughout the region who collaborate to provide opportunities for the public to view and purchase their work, culminating in a weekend-long road trip through southwest Iowa to multiple locations with dozens of artists.
The Southwest Iowa Art Tour's mission is to “Connect rural communities through art.”

The first art tour was held in the fall of 2014, and has since grown exponentially.
This year's 10th Annual Southwest Iowa Art Tour has more than tripled from that inaugural event and features more than 80 unique artists in 18 gathering places in 11 communities throughout southwest Iowa. We are looking forward to seeing what the next 10 years bring - mark your calendars for the third weekend in September each year!
Chart your course, visit some of the great eateries, breweries, wineries and other retailers along the way and discover phenomenal art and artists in southwest Iowa!
