Find an arty date (or just an arty friend) at Art Matchmaker

Published on July 19th, 2013 | by Joe Lawler

On Aug. 1 Art Noir will hold an Art Matchmaker event at the Des Moines Art Center, fixing up art lovers with potential love interests or just friends.

To put yourself in the running to meet a potential date or new friends, take the Art Personality Quiz, where you identify what type of relationship you’re looking for, and rank a series of words from the Des Moines Art Center’s permanent collection. How you answer will determine who Art Noir will match you up with.

“We thought it would be a really fun way to look at the permanent collection,” Art Noir president Liz Lidgett said. “People will go on three mini-dates, but instead of sitting at tables like a typical speed dating event you’ll get instructions to meet someone by the Cindy Sherman or another piece to keep people moving throughout the museum.”

If you make a connection, the Art Center will be screening “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” that evening on the lawn at dusk. Your mini-date could end up lasting a little longer.

You can register for Art Matchmaker here. Registration ends on July 26.
