Architecture Days

April 13th – 18th

Celebrating Dubuque’s rich architectural history.
The mission of Dubuque Main Street’s 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.  2015’s theme – “Be Our Guest” – shines a spotlight on historic hotels and guest houses in downtown Dubuque.

A variety of activities for Architecture Days are scheduled from April 13- 18.  During this time, the Dubuque Community School District Student Art Exhibit will be displayed throughout the atrium of the hotel.  Elementary students from the Dubuque Community School District who participated in the “Be Our Guest” after-school program will display art in various mediums including sculpture, pottery and painting.  The “Be Our Guest” after-school program was funded by a Mediacom Arts & Culture grant. The public is invited to view the art projects the entire week of Architecture Days, with an opening reception Monday, April 13, at 6:00 pm.

Additionally, there are a number of historic building tours scheduled throughout the week.  We welcome the public to participate in a comprehensive tour of our historic hotel on Tuesday, April 14 at 12 pm.
