Enhancing Drake's rich tradition of fine arts.

Friends of Drake Arts (FDA) has fostered fine arts programming at Drake University for more than 25 years, ensuring the best possible fine arts education for Drake students and exceptional fine arts opportunities for the region.  FDA's committment to access means all of Drake's fine arts events are available to members of the Drake and Des Moines communities at little or no cost.

Learn more about the activities and goals of the organization by visiting About Friends of Drake Arts.
