The Des Moines museum is Wells Fargo's first to include a rotating art gallery. The opening exhibition will feature about 20 pieces from the Wells Fargo collection by artists such as Andy Warhol, Alfred Stieglitz and Helen Frankenthaler. Those pieces are among more than 4,000 added to Wells Fargo's collection after the 2007 acquisition of the brokerage A.G. Edwards & Sons, Inc. The gallery will feature local artists on occasion as well.Because of the art gallery, the museum will be one of the future stops along the new Art Route, a 6.6-mile painted connector path that will wind through downtown Des Moines from the State Capitol to Meredith Corporation. Wells Fargo is a major supporter of the Art Route, having made a $50,000 contribution. The museum is considered a key piece of downtown Des Moines redevelopment and a significant new attraction for the region. Among the state and local dignitaries joining Wells Fargo officials to celebrate the grand opening of the history museum Thursday were Iowa Governor Terry Branstad, Lieutenant Governor Kim Reynolds, Des Moines Mayor Frank Cownie and Greater Des Moines Partnership CEO Jay Byers. "The opening of the Wells Fargo History Museum is a significant step in the continued revitalization of Walnut Street in downtown Des Moines," Byers said. "Today's opening is another example of the strong corporate leadership in our community, and we are fortunate to have leaders like Wells Fargo driving momentum in Greater Des Moines."
