Veterans Parkway Folded Flag Display
West Des Moines, IA
The City of West Des Moines, Iowa honored veterans with its Folded Flags art installation. Unveiled on Flag Day 2019, the fifteen, 15-foot illuminating folded flags marks the first phase of an 11-mile roadway enhancement project beginning at Brown’s Woods Drive and Veterans Parkway. With Folded Flags, reflection is the main theme and serves as a reminder of our veterans’ service and sacrifice.
A red ribbon art installation and median and gateway treatments have been designed for the remainder of the road as it is constructed.
Shive-Hattery worked with the City to provide a collaborative process with citizens and veterans; design; bidding and construction administration for the community identity features and sustainable (low-maintenance) landscaping.
