Walking along the Mississippi River is always grand, but seeing the annually changed outdoor art objects offers excitement while taking a health break with a walk.

This exhibit, which changes out annually, complements the beauty of the Mississippi River as you stroll down the riverwalk. We loved the variety of smaller and larger art pieces. Great for a photo opp, too! What a relaxing way to spend an afternoon in Dubuque!

Loved walking along the river. The flowers were beautiful. Enjoyed the unique art pieces. The sea gulls were floating on the river. We were blessed with a beautiful day with wonderful sunshine!

I confess: We did not pay much attention to the art, but we loved the walk along the river. The walk is somewhat elevated from the river, but there are places where you can get down to the river's edge. And the walk is family...More
