The Des Moines Mural Room

The lower level of the building is home to the 360-degree, 1,091-square-foot, vibrantly-colored mural by artist Harry Donald Jones (and a team of twenty-one other researchers, artists and artisans) entitled “A Social History of Des Moines.”

The mural traces the history of Des Moines from prehistoric times through the mid-1930s, when it was created (1937-1941).This mural was designed to dominate the walls of the newly opening Boys' and Girls' Department.
