The Voices Mural Project artists have completed 18 intriguingly aesthetic murals in downtown Dubuque. Filled with vibrant colors and whimsical designs, they have surely brought a lot of life to the streets of the city. The organization behind the street art project, Voice Productions, wanted to bring an urban experience to the city and give a space for artists around the country to express their ideas. This project has been funded through a state grant and supported by local business.
The main reason for this project was to be able to draw out more talent from the area and give people an interesting place to go and feel as though their city has culture. People of all ages can come and enjoy a stroll through downtown to view these urban works of art.
If you haven’t posted anything new on your social media in a while you should take advantage of the amazing artwork displayed within the streets of downtown Dubuque. There’s definitely a reason why these murals are getting so much attention.
To see even more art that Dubuque has to offer, the Dubuque Museum of Art and newest Art on the River sculptures are something you will enjoy! The Dubuque Museum of Art is open 10am through 5pm Monday through Friday, and on weekends 1pm to 4pm.
