From Hopelessness to Hope


Creative Visions

1343 13th Street
Des Moines, Iowa 50314

The mural “From Hopelessness to Hope” at Creative Visions contains the names of men and women who fell victim to gun violence in Des Moines.

The original mural was completed in 1997, and remembered those killed in the early 1980s to the mid 1990s. Unfortunately, since that time more lives were lost to gun violence in our city.

In 2018, the King Irving Neighborhood Association redeveloped the mural to include the names of those killed since the original mural was completed.

The new mural was financed by the generosity of community members. DSM Brew Coffee Company is proud to have supported the mural's redevelopment.
