With so much to learn about and look forward to, this Quad Cities art experience will have you itching to discover all of the local art. The tour includes plenty of Instagram-able murals, like the Floreciente banner, full of vibrant shapes and colors, as well as the Fred & Ethel’s Mini Park Mural, portraying flowing flowers in the quaint downtown. And if you haven’t yet seen the Isle Stairs Mural, you’ll have to take a gamble on this iconic deck of cards-inspired installation. 

In addition, there are more than 250 decorated glass floats dispersed around the Quad Cities for the Great Glass Hunt. The floats are marked with interactive QR codes to help you document your treasure hunt finds. All of the hand-blown glass was created by Hot Glass and is hidden throughout parks in Bettendorf, Davenport, Moline and Rock Island. You can collect as many floats as you can get your hands on because the Great Glass Hunt isn’t over until all of the orbs have been secured and uploaded.

This mobile-exclusive passport is where your art journey begins and your seasonal boredom ends. Each user’s experience will be a little bit different, but that’s the fun of it. So let your phone and imagination guide you through the Quad Cities, surrounded by stunning sculptures, amazing architecture and mesmerizing masterpieces.
