Snap a Photo With Council Bluffs’ UNsculptures

Council Bluffs has new art additions in town! Pottawattamie Arts, Culture & Entertainment (PACE) has partnered with the City of Council Bluffs, installing 10 sculptures throughout the city. Funded by Ted and Polly Hoff and the Iowa West Foundation, the sculptures celebrate how Council Bluffs is “Unlike anywhere else. On purpose.”

All 10 sculptures are of Council Bluffs’ “UN” logo, but each with a different artist’s unique twist. The pieces are located around some of the city’s attractions like the Union Pacific Railroad Museum and River’s Edge Pavilion as well as around local businesses and partners like the Harvester Artspace Lofts.

Below you’ll find a complete list of UNsculpture locations around town. Strike a pose and snap a photo with these unique pieces! Think you can find all 10 next time you visit Council Bluffs? We have faith you can!
