Exhibition Overview 

Art Along the Trail is a temporary outdoor exhibit, displayed along Clive’s landmark feature, the Greenbelt Park and Trail system, from May through October each year, with 2018 being the seveth year of the exhibition.  The art pieces will be displayed in highly visible sites along the Greenbelt. Works are selected by an Art Along the Trail Selection Panel comprised of two members of the City’s Park Board, two members of the Public Art Commission, one City council member, one Clive resident or Clive business owner representative from the Chamber of Commerce, and one member of the local art community.

The Clive Public Art Program was established by the City Council in December 2007.  The Public Arts Advisory Commission was established at that time to oversee the operations of the public art program.  As part of the City’s commitment to enhance the ‘Distinct by Nature’ character of Clive with the addition of art in public places, the City Council adopted direct appropriation funding for public art.  Since approval of the Master Plan, the City has awarded three commissions to artists to create artwork.  The Art Along the Trail exhibition will continue the City’s efforts to promote aesthetic excellence and enhance the artistic vitality of Clive.

The Public Arts Advisory Commission is excited to continue this annual art exhibit into 2018 thanks to a Cultural Enrichment grant from Bravo of Greater Des Moines.
