Clive Art Gallery
The Clive Public Library is proud to present our Art Gallery! Come celebrate the artists in Clive and the Des Moines metro area. We will feature artwork from a variety of local metro and student artists. During the pandemic, we have been showcasing the talents of our artists right here on our website. Now that the library is OPEN again, we hope you'll find a new read and revel in the wonderful artwork in person. If you are a metro artist, and would like to have your work considered for display in our web or library gallery, please fill out the artist application below.
