The Southwest Iowa Art Tour is entering its sixth year connecting southwest Iowa communities through art! The 2018 tour attracted an estimated 2,200 participants to numerous gathering places, galleries, and studios throughout southwest Iowa. This event is not only great for artists, but brings people to experience small towns in our region. We encourage participants and attendees to chart their own course and visit some of the great businesses, eateries, and wineries along the way, while discovering phenomenal art and artists in southwest Iowa! The fall of 2014 marked the first art tour, which was organized by a small group of area artists and volunteers. Last year's tour has tripled from that inaugural year. The economic impact realized from this event is estimated at over $125,620. We are looking forward to building this weekend event into bigger and better things for 2019! This year’s tour is scheduled for:
Saturday, September 21 through Sunday, September 22, 2019
