The City of Dubuque’s Office of Arts & Cultural Affairs is now accepting sculpture submissions through Monday, May 24, 2021, for the 2021-22 Art on the River sculpture exhibit along the Mississippi Riverwalk in the Port of Dubuque, Iowa. Existing sculptures, as well as concept proposals for new sculptural work, are encouraged. Both permanent and temporal/semi-permanent works will be considered.
Resiliency Flows has been selected for this year's exhibition theme. Successful applications will propose sculptures that draw upon themes of resiliency, in relation to communities and the earth's resources; speak to overcoming impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, or that speak to issues around social justice.
For each chosen piece, artists will receive a $1,800 artist’s honorarium, along with other benefits and selling opportunities. There is no fee to apply. Learn more and submit here.
