DUBUQUE MUSEUM OF ART – Dubuque, Iowa
Description – This museum originally was located in a “work of art,” an Egyptian Revival structure built in 1858 as the County Jail. It was constructed of gray native limestone with cast-iron columns. In 1999, the museum moved to a new nearby location. It displays both locally and nationally known artists in various media: painting, etching, print making, and sculpture.
Permanent Collection Exhibitions
The permanent collection provides a strong foundation for building exhibitions highlighting regional and historically significant artists. Exhibiting these works reveals the contributions that local, regional, national, and international artists make to the cultural diversity of the museum’s collection.
Regional Contemporary Exhibitions
Through local and regional exhibitions, the museum fosters support and exposure for working artists in our own community. Showcasing local and regional artists allows a greater appreciation of the history, culture and the current forms of expression in Dubuque and the tri-state region.
Educational programming strives for innovation and diversity. It encompasses the Glab Children’s Gallery, studio classes, workshops for adults and children, school and community out-reach, collaborative projects, Arts Trek, tours, lectures and related activities designed to serve a broad-based audience.
