John and Mary Pappajohn Sculpture Park
A donation of 25 sculptures worth $40 million transformed a downtown green space in Des Moines. The Des Moines Art Center curates the new collection at the John and Mary Pappajohn Sculpture Park, which looks especially fabulous at night, when lights illuminate the oversize sculptures. Enjoy walking through the sculptures on your own, or make a reservation for a one-hour guided tour (515/271-0328; www.desmoinesartcenter.org/downtown).
