Art Studio Overview:

Artists and designers collaborated with the client on a significant art installation for the newly renovated historic Hotel Fort Des Moines. Based on antique printer blocks, RDG’s design features 12 unique panels, each made up of words specifically chosen by the client to honor the beauty of Des Moines and the rich history of the hotel. Words that hold meaning like Landmark, Wonder, Delight, and Iowa are hidden within the installation. Artists digitally designed the project, using a CNC router to cut individual pieces from treated boards and then hand-finished each with a faux-bronze effect.
