Friends of Drake Arts

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.
