Steven Vail Fine Arts-Project Room is located at 1501 Walnut Street in Des Moines, Iowa. 

A straight shot from the Des Moines Arts Center and just steps away from the John and Mary Pappajohn Sculpture Park, SVFA offers our patrons a chance to experience museum quality Modern and Contemporary artwork up close and personally, away from the hustle and bustle. Bribe us and you can even take the work home with you. Don't try that at the Art Center (strict deaccession policy there).







In 2019, Steven Vail Fine Art debuted a new, bespoke gallery space in Downtown Des Moines' Fitch Building.

Executed by Christensen Development, the architecture firms spiller. and IDEAA converted a dim, dark raw space on the ground level of Des Moines' Fitch Building into a modern, light-filled gallery. 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. Located a block from the John and Mary Pappajohn Sculpture Garden, the gallery offers the public a retreat from the hustle and bustle of city life.

When we walked into the space, it was instant. I mean, we could both visualize the potential."

We'd like to thank Christensen Development and the architecture firms IDEAA Architecture and spiller. for their expertise in the creation of our new bespoke location.

OUR Past Location

With Kirk’s life long passion for art and our mutual interest in nurturing a culture of fine art in Des Moines, it is both a fitting and proper step to open a gallery in the Teachout Building."

Steven Vail to ARTDAILY 

Steven Vail Fine Arts' past location at the Historic Teachout Building in Des Moines, Iowa was a collaboration between Vail and legendary architect and patron of the arts, Kirk Von Blunck.

Kirk and I tore up the business model of the conventional Des Moines/Iowa art gallery and went for broke. We had an absolute ball—and Kirk would have certainly wanted that ball to keep rolling"
