DUBUQUE (KWWL) - The Foundation for Dubuque Public Schools and Mediacom have awarded $1,700 to support "Be Our Guest", an after-school visual arts program for elementary school students.

"Be Our Guest" is offered to Dubuque Community School District elementary students in collaboration with Dubuque Main Street Ltd. as part of their annual Architecture Days celebration. Students work with art teachers, local historians, and architects to learn about the different architecture styles of Dubuque's downtown hotels and inns, study their history and relevance to the city's cultural and economic development, and create mixed media or 3-D artwork.

The project will culminate with a public showcase at the Hotel Julien, beginning with an opening ceremony on Monday, Apr. 13 from 6-7:00 p.m.
