The Residential is a social experiment and an apartment gallery working with regional and national artists. Open during exhibit receptions, by appointment, and on occasional gallery days, the Residential couples casual hospitality to the value of living with art.

Located on the fourth floor of the Crane Artists Lofts on the Western edge of downtown Des Moines, across from the Fitch Studio Building and Exile Brewing.


Search for Mat Greiner at the front door box and call to be buzzed in. Go straight ahead, through the gray door, and straight down the hall. Around the corner at the end is the elevator. Take that to the fourth floor. Exit to the left, and follow the hallway back to the front of the building. #407 is on the left.


Exhibition Openings, of course, but also please schedule appointments. My regular hours will be announced soon.


Write with any questions or to schedule a visit. Artist submissions are accepted, but please do not expect a reply. The Residential stages four to five exhibits of contemporary art per year and has a special interest in works that engage matters of social experiences or activism.
