The Figge Art Museum is the premier art exhibition and education facility between Chicago and Des Moines. Its landmark glass building on the banks of the Mississippi, designed by British architect David Chipperfield, is home to one of the Midwest’s finest art collections, and hosts world-class traveling exhibitions. Host your wedding at this gleaming, luminous glass building overlooking the Mississippi River. The grand lobby, dining room and bar, or auditorium provides a stunning stage for a ceremony or reception. For a large wedding celebration, go for the grand lobby with a dramatic open floor plan, sky high ceilings, and beautiful terrazzo flooring that make for a myriad of possibilities. The contemporary lounge and striking river views makes for a romantic atmosphere. You can also expand your party to the outdoors and the terrace for a better view of the river. The dining room and bar is perfect for a classy intimate gathering. Take your ceremony to the John Deere Auditorium for state-of-the-art audio visual equipment and custom Italian leather seating and hold your reception in the one of the other elegant spaces offered.
