Hoyt Sherman Place Foundation is the honored recipient of a $20,000 Cultural Leadership Partner Operating Support Grant from the Iowa Department of Cultural Affairs. Funding for this program is made possible by an annual appropriation from the Iowa Legislature to the Iowa Arts Council, a division of the Iowa Department of Cultural Affairs and by the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency. Recipients of this grant demonstrate their investment in a rich cultural environment that improves the quality of life for all Iowans. Current and prospective Cultural Leadership Partners display an exemplary record of programming, managerial excellence and community service on a year-round basis to the citizens of Iowa.
Research shows that investments in arts and culture -- in museums, performances and historic buildings, for example -- help communities boost tourism, attract businesses, retain workers and improve the overall quality of life for residents. Accordingly, the Iowa Department of Cultural Affairs helps Iowans invest in the people, places and points of pride that define our state, Hoyt Sherman Place being one of them.
Hoyt Sherman Place is a vibrant cultural destination where people can connect with art, music, history, and one another. The venue offers an intimate theater experience with extraordinary acoustics, a beautiful historic mansion, and a majestic art gallery. Ever since Hoyt Sherman completed his family home in 1877, this lovely space in Sherman Hill has been a hub of connection. From one-of-a-kind events to sharing art and exploring history, this is the place to be in Des Moines. For more than 100 years, Hoyt Sherman Place has been a part of its community and will be for the next 100.
