Art In the Alley
Phase one of the Art in the Alley project occurred in 2019. Main Street Elkader sought out artists and both financial and in-kind supporters to create wall art for main alleyways throughout the downtown district. The goal was to create bold, unique, family-friendly artistic statements that reflect our dynamic, healthy and art-friendly community. The Art in the Alley project was formed to enhance this Iowa Cultural and Entertainment District and contribute to Elkader as an arts and retail destination.
Murals printed panel art were applied in the summer of 2019 to the alleyways as the initial phase of the project, with a plan to expand to as many buildings as possible through supporters of this project. Local artists were encouraged to participate as well as artists from across the region!
Main Street Elkader is in the process of beginning phase two of the project to add additional alleyway murals.

Each year, the Main Street Elkader Design Committee works on downtown beautification projects. As you know, our hanging baskets and sidewalk flower pots are very important to creating a positive environment in the downtown for both guests and those who call Elkader home.
We are asking for your support, big or small, for this important project. Business owners, community members and visitors alike can support us by donating towards our flower fund to help keep our downtown beautification process successful.
We appreciate any donation you can make to assist in this project.
Thank you for your commitment and ongoing support to help Main Street Elkader's Design Committee!
