Tilda Brown Swanson was one of six artists asked to create concept art showing her vision of how her glass art could be part of planned exhibits for the future Des Moines Children’s Museum. Her poster, done collaboratively with Slingshot Architecture, is on display at the Museum’s temporary interactive exhibit location in Valley West Mall in West Des Moines, Iowa.

The exhibit is open during Museum hours.
