Dubuque Main Street Fall Into Art

October 6, 2017

October 6, 2017.

Fall Into Art is a FREE art tour around downtown Dubuque, organized by Dubuque Main Street and kept free by presenting sponsor Premier Bank. A combination of gallery owners, curators, educators, students, and working artists will welcome you into their spaces to share their collections of paintings, pottery, photography, mixed media art, installation art, design graphics, and more. The Fall Into Art Gallery Tour is open to the public and free of charge. Participants may tour the 9 art locations in any order by walking, biking, riding, or driving.

This self guided tour offers a culturally rich exploration of the downtown Dubuque Cultural Corridor including Cable Car Square, the Historic Millwork District, Historic Old Main, and Upper Main/Farmers’ Market.


The two Fall Into Art trolleys will make a loop, stopping at each participating gallery roughly every 20 minutes–but the route is very walkable, too!
