Folded Flags Video
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.
