The fun (and work) starts now on "Waukee Railroad Pergola"

Artists in the RDG Planning & Design studio in downtown Des Moines next week will start making, pressing and firing 7,758 clay tiles that will be used this year in the building of a huge, $1.1 million public art installation, which will be the gateway to the Raccoon River Valley Trail on the west side of Waukee. Parking lot paving, concrete footings, electrical installation are all scheduled toward a goal of completing the iconic artwork by the end of August. Get ready for some fun spectating!
