Since 2002, Quad City Arts has facilitated a rotating public art program in the Quad Cities allowing pieces to be rented for one year with the option to become permanent. The City of Bettendorf has utilized the program since 2008. The sculptures are an affordable way to beautify the community and allow the city to invest in the arts.
This Summer, 7 new sculptures were installed using this program and placed around the city for the upcoming year! Each sculpture will have a plaque installed on its base with sculpture details like name, artist, and purchase price.
Recently, we expanded the program to include locations on private land. You can find these sculptures at 1805 State Street in front of Build to Suit's offices and 2019 Grant Street at Ascentra Credit Union's Headquarters.
This map shows you where you can find these sculptures as well as other art in the city. We invite you to take a tour and check the pieces out in person.
