Roudabout Cedar Falls Public Art Tour

Take the Tour This Summer!

This innovative mobile platform offers a convenient and enjoyable way to discover our city’s diverse collection of sculptures and murals. With a playful nod to Cedar Falls’ iconic roundabouts, the Roundabout Cedar Falls Art Tour promises to be a delightful adventure for art enthusiasts and curious explorers alike. Whether you’re strolling on foot or cruising on your bike, this mobile tour makes it effortless to pinpoint the locations of our city’s artistic treasures.


Scan our QR code found on the sculpture plaques or go directly to the app. Our team at the Hearst Center has added some exciting features to enhance your art tour experience. Take part in our selfie challenge by snapping photos in front of your favorite artworks and earn some awesome Hearst swag. Plus, test your knowledge of art and Iowa artists with engaging quizzes designed to entertain you as you stroll along our trails.


We’re proud to acknowledge the support of the Cedar Falls Community Foundation Diamond Art & History grant, which made this project possible. So, what are you waiting for?
