Dubuque Art Scene

Why Dubuque?

Dubuque is known for a lively art scene, mostly centered around downtown galleries, studios, museums, music venues and coffee shops. The Art + Design Department maintains a professional atmosphere that directs students to be actively involved in the art and design world beyond the Clarke campus.
