My name's Evan and I'm the creator Say Hello to the City, an arts + culture site based out of Des Moines, Iowa. I'm a lifelong Midwesterner, avid fan of Friday Night Lights, and a big believer in the power of creativity and community.

The Midwest's way more than corn and insurance companies. Don't believe me? This site and many more are here to help change your mind. While you're at it: definitely check out my guide to Des Moines over on Design*Sponge and follow me on Instagram by clicking right here. My site's here to help you become better acquainted with what the Midwest's creative scene has to offer. Hope it does what it's meant to!

Come say hello to the City...
