Mainframe Studios launched a new rotating sculpture program this month.

  • The outdoor works on display are available for purchase.

Details: The Des Moines studio's first sculpture in the program, titled "Man with the Moon," is more than 14 feet high and made of welded steel.

  • It'll likely be on display for about a year, Mainframe director Siobhan Spain told Axios this week.
  • A price for the artwork hasn't been set yet, Spain said.

📍 Go look: Located just outside the Des Moines building's southwest entrance, near the corner of 10th and Center streets.
