May is Preservation Month! We got our celebration off to a great start with a delay on demolition of Highland Apartments and we want to keep the party going and invite you to come along!
Mix Creative is a cool new place which they describe as “an intentional place where creative minds can work alongside one another, be inspired by each other, cheer for each other, and grow their small businesses.” That vibe along with their 100-year old letterpress makes it the perfect place to start raising money and awareness for saving the Highland Apartments and Preservation Corps United.
Join us for a fundraising happy hour celebrating Preservation Month. We will be sharing the historic preservation and renovation efforts of Preservation Corps United and Hat Trick Renovation, showcasing their efforts to save The Highland Apartment building in Highland Park Neighborhood of Des Moines. Funds raised will go towards saving the Highland Apartments Building and/or other historic structures in Des Moines.
Tickets will include a limited-edition print by Minderson Press on her 100-year-old platen letterpress machine. She will also be giving demonstrations during the event!
We are encouraging each guest to bring a small found or unused object that will be compiled and made into a one-of-a-kind piece of art that will be put up for auction following the event.
Join us to learn more about our plans for Highland Apartments and making Des Moines the center of the Preservation Universe! Tickets can be purchased here!
