The City of Dubuque is preparing for the 12th edition of Art on the River! Over the years we have had many established and upcoming artists exhibit their work on the Mississippi Riverwalk and this year we would one again like to invite sculptors to submit work for consideration by our experienced panel of jurors.
STIPEND & AWARDS
Our current stipend is $1500. Best in show will be awarded $1000 and people’s choice $500.
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.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.
