“Area Competition Exhibit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

We were fortunate to enjoy the exhibit of the area art competition. We were impressed with the variety & quality of the entries. Loved the exterior sculpture of the modern American Gothic couple. It was a fun experience. It's a small center, but it offers excellent art!

“Interesting place to visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

Went to a lecture (weekly) a few weeks ago. Enjoyed it as well as the art & children's project that was being featured that month.
Well worth a visit

“Not just a gallery!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2012

The Dubuque Art Center works hard to offer the community reasons to visit. They have a respectable collection of artworks, including some by Grant Wood. But they also offer the "Dead Artist" series, where actors portray a famous artist and give a lecture as that character and allow questions following the presentation. The museum reaches out to the community - adults and children alike, which I think is terrific.
