The City of Waukon is a byway community within the Drifltess Area Scenic Byway Corridor. One of the byway’s priorities is development and improvement of art and cultural resources. To act on this priority, a grant was acquired to help develop proposals for and the eventual funding of place-based public art.
The Waukon Art Advisory Committee will work with the Byways of Iowa Foundation and Northeast Iowa RC&D to fund the materials and artist fees associated with the project through grants, fundraising efforts, donations, etc.
The Committee is now seeking an artist for the project. Click HERE for more information.
