Why Paint Dubuque?
Historic architecture, interesting landmarks, Driftless Area topography, beautiful parks and arboretum, and the Mighty Mississippi.
Dubuque also offers a rich performing and visual arts scene, and, important to creatives, a wealth of interesting locally owned venues such as restaurants, coffee shops and microbreweries. As a tool for artists, we have developed our Paint Dubuque website, which provides suggested painting locations with site information and embedded maps.
