West Glen

WEST DES MOINES, Iowa – West Glen Town Center in West Des Moines just got a bit of extra color from a Philadelphia artist.

The town center called on local artists to submit a plan to decorate one of its side-streets this summer. Philadelphia-based artist, Brett Budzinski won the bid and painted an alleyway between Cowboy Jack’s and Winestyles.

Budzinski was given a stipend of $3,000 for his time and supplies, according to the competition guidelines. Property mangers at West Glen call it an effort to add color to the shopping center.
