View our current exhibition, "The Show Must Go On", in virtual reality!

Joining the trend of major institutions and other international galleries, we at Steven Vail Fine Arts have implemented a whimsical virtual gallery for your enjoyment.  Our virtual gallery features our current exhibition, "The Show Must Go On", which includes works by Richard Serra, Ross Bleckner, John Giorno, Ellsworth Kelly, along with others and a very rare portfolio by Sol LeWitt.

Please explore our current exhibition with a guided tour.


The architecture firms spiller. and IDEAA converted a dim, dark raw space on the ground level of Des Moines' Fitch Building into a beautiful, light-filled gallery. Located a block from the John and Mary Pappajohn Sculpture Garden and sheltered from the city’s chaotic streets, Steven Vail Fine Arts – Project Room is comprised of a main exhibition salon, an art research library and an auxiliary exhibition space which will feature works from our collection. Executed by Christensen Development, the finished gallery is a beautiful, modern space that offers a retreat from the hustle and bustle of city life.
