Dubuque Launches Bus Shelter Art Project

Dubuque is asking for the public’s help in beautifying its bus shelters. This campaign, called Art En Route, asks community members to fill out a coloring sheet by March 15 and share ideas for the 14 structures throughout the city, informing a call for mural artists in the spring.

Art En Route is run through the city of Dubuque’s Office of Arts and Cultural Affairs, in partnership with Green Dubuque and funded by a $25,000 national grant from Bloomberg Philanthropies’ Asphalt Art Initiative. There were 220 communities nationwide that applied for the program. Just 16 were approved, and Dubuque is the only one in Iowa.

Some teenagers and young adults who send submissions may also be selected for short-term artist mentorship opportunities for the creation of sidewalk murals this summer. Learn more about Dubuque’s project here.
