A New Public Art Initiative

The Office of Arts & Cultural Affairs within the City’s Economic Development Department has just released a call for community participation and engagement to share community-wide regarding Art En Route, a new public art initiative funded by Bloomberg Philanthropies. For details, visit

Current community engagement, being collected through March 15, 2021, includes:

  • An activity / coloring sheet where any and all community members can create and submit their visions of what sidewalk murals at local bus shelters could look like;
  • A survey that seeks to gather input related to use/non-use of public transit, local priorities on taking climate action, and aesthetics for the sidewalk murals to come.

Please share this call for engagement widely, inviting your networks, friends, and families to get involved! A big thanks to all those propelling the project forward including Green Dubuque, Green Iowa AmeriCorps, Gina Bell / Sustainable Dubuque, Justin Harris-Davis / Transit Department, and Gigantic Design.
