Dubuque Museum Of Art
The mission of the Dubuque Museum of Art (DuMA) is to excite, engage, and serve diverse communities within the Tri-State area through our collections, exhibitions, and educational programs. We connect generations of people with their cultural heritage and exceptional art.
Established in 1874, the DuMA is among Iowa’s oldest cultural organizations. Since opening an award-winning, remodeled facility in downtown Dubuque in 1999, the DuMA has expanded its permanent collections to include nearly 2,500 objects, including internationally-recognized works by Grant Wood and Edward S. Curtis. In addition, the DuMA regularly hosts and presents juried, curated, and traveling exhibitions, featuring locally, regionally, and nationally-recognized artists, and offers a diverse array of youth and adult art education programs, outreach activities, and special events.
Accredited by the American Alliance of Museums since 2004, the DuMA is a Smithsonian Affiliate and a member of the Midwest and Iowa Museums Associations.
