America's River Art Project

Rotarian and resident artist, Gary Olsen, previews and reports on the progress he's making on a painting commissioned by the Dubuque Rotary Club celebrating its 100th Anniversary and the 15th Anniversary of its commitment to America's River Project. Gary is known for his landscapes and cityscapes of Dubuque, Iowa and its environs. You can visit his studio at The painting will be issued as a limited edition print, signed and numbered by the artist and available this fall. Funds raised by the sale of these prints will benefit local humanitarian projects and non-profit organizations that are dedicated to improving the lives of others and making Dubuque a great place to live and raise families.
