About the Jamie Hurd Amphitheater

The West Des Moines City Campus is a vibrant place of natural beauty and culture. A large pond, West Des Moines Library and City Hall, as well as West Des Moines Schools’ Learning Resource Center, two schools, and a football stadium make the City Campus a busy hub of civic activity.

The Jamie Hurd Amphitheater is the newest addition to the City/School Campus and serves as a community-based cultural space, bringing people together to share inspiring musical performances and creative showcases.

The Jamie Hurd Amphitheater can play host to a wide variety of community events, including concerts, outdoor movies, festivals, and theatrical performances. With a stage built to accommodate up to 50 musicians and lawn seating for up to 2000, the Jamie Hurd Amphitheater is perfect for events of all sizes, from weddings to reunions to fundraisers.
 
The West Des Moines Public Arts Commission wants to celebrate this special place with a permanent commissioned work of public art to be installed on or near the amphitheater site. Earlier this year, a public art work group selected Kentucky artist Douwe Blumberg to create this artwork.

The purpose of this survey is to collect public input regarding programming at the Jamie Hurd Amphitheater as well as the public art piece. Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts. 
 
Construction of the Jamie Hurd Amphitheater was funded through generous donations from the Microsoft Corporation and the Richard and Linda Hurd family along with Local Option Sales and Services Tax. It is the second element of the Five Waters Project to be completed. For more information on the Jamie Hurd Amphitheater, visit www.wdm.iowa.gov/JHA or email ParkRec@wdm.iowa.gov.
