Art on the River Sculpture Program, Dubuque, IA

The City of Dubuque, Iowa is now soliciting sculpture proposals for its 16th Art on the River public art sculpture exhibit, to be held along the Mississippi Riverwalk in the Port of Dubuque from August 2022 through July 2023. "Crossing Bridges" has been selected by a community planning committee as the theme for the 2022-23 exhibit. Artists are encouraged to submit proposals for existing sculptures as well as concept proposals for new sculptural work for this year’s exhibit. Both permanent and semi-permanent/temporary works will be considered. Successful applications will propose sculptures that draw upon themes of connection, unity, equitable progress, and stability. Applicants should seek to inspire viewers to reflect on “bridges” as a concept that represents the connection between individual experience and a shared humanity. Ten sculptural works will be selected for the exhibition, to be displayed at the Port of Dubuque from August 2022 to July 2023. There is no fee to apply and artists can submit completed works or those to be fabricated by late July 2022 install dates. Artists may submit multiple works for consideration; a separate application must be completed for each artwork.
