"Music Car"

Auctioned to Brian Brown of Missouri

Quakerdale Youth Shelter & Promise Home


To provide a temporary and safe place for children and youth to live, until a more permanent placement is determined by the courts or the Iowa Department of Human Services.

Quakerdale Youth Shelter in Newton in collaboration with Promise Home are working with professional artists in theatre with T Valada-Viars and visual arts with Robert Schulte. The group had a sneak preview of what it will be like when the rubber meets the road as they wrapped their car in brown paper and showcased it the 2nd day of their project in the Newton 4th of July parade. Written across the paper was, "Coming Soon ... Art Car!" This car is in progress and on display some Saturday mornings and Monday and Tuesday afternoons as youth work on the Art Car at the 1st Presbyterian Church in Newton.

The Quakerdale car has just developed the theme "music car".

The Arts Connection, the local arts council is a local sponsor of the project. Major sponsors include; Liz Kruidenier, Pioneer Hi-Bred Int'l, Principal Financial, Iowa Health System and the Greater Des Moines Community Foundation.
