|Art on the River Overview
|During the course of the year, special events are held to promote the enjoyment and understanding of public art. Each piece is for sale but must remain part of the Art on the River display for the entire year. The City functions as a gallery and will take a commission on each sale to fund future exhibitions. For sales information, contact the Arts and Cultural Affairs Coordinator by email or by calling 563-690-6059. Download a sales information sheet here.
The City Council approved the creation of the Art on the River outdoor sculpture project In November 2005, and approved a budget of $300,000 over the next 10 years for this innovative initiative.
Art on the River is coordinated by a sub-committee of the City's Arts and Cultural Affairs Advisory Commission and includes representatives from the Dubuque Museum of Art, local artists, educators, and City staff.
