Architecture Days 2018

April 9 @ 8:00 AM - April 14 @ 5:00 PM

The mission of Architecture Days is to heighten the recognition of architecture as art form and to explore the rich architectural landscape of Dubuque through programming for all ages. 2018’s theme of: “Director’s Cut” shines a spotlight on theaters, opera houses and movie film sets once in Downtown Dubuque.

Architecture Days offers the public the opportunity to learn more about architecture and Dubuque’s historic fabric, celebrating our sense of place, our unique treasures, and the city’s growth through commitment to architectural re-use and community.

Events are presented by Dubuque Main Street, in collaboration with the Carnegie-Stout Public Library, the Center for Dubuque History at Loras College, the City of Dubuque, Dubuque Community Schools, Mediacom, the Old House Enthusiasts, the National Mississippi River Museum, TH Media, the Dubuque County Historical Society, the Dubuque County Historic Preservation Commission, and the City of Dubuque’s Historic Preservation Commission.
