Art on the River: Resiliency Flows

Eleven sculptures were selected for display from August 2021 through July 2022 for the City of Dubuque’s 15th edition of its annual temporary public art exhibit, Art on the River. The theme for the 2021-22 exhibit was Resiliency Flows, encouraging artworks that spoke to the resiliency and fortitude needed to rebuild better as communities worldwide continued to rebound from the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and grow in the ongoing fight for social justice.

A community jury panel selected the sculptures from a pool of 56 applications from 34 artists representing 11 states in the US as well as Canada. The panel's selections were vetted by the City of Dubuque’s Arts & Cultural Affairs Advisory Commission and approved by the Dubuque City Council for inclusion in the exhibit.
