The Residential is Chicken Tractor's current art exhibition venue. Transient Galleryserved as the original exhibition arm of Chicken Tractor, and is now closed. Until some future time when Chicken Tractor can find a more permanent physical location suitable as an arts venue in Des Moines, gallery shows will be programmed at the Residential.
The Residential is an apartment gallery and a social experiment. It attempts to combine casual hosting and contemporary art in a way that demonstrates the value of living with art. Outside of opening nights and events, you are encouraged to make appointments while exhibits are up. Feel free to call or drop by, talk about art or something else, and share a drink or some food as you would when stopping by a friend's house for a front porch chat.
From 2013 to 2015, exhibitions took place at Transient Gallery. Those exhibitions are archived below.
