The mission of the DAP is to promote and sustain the creation and appreciation of the visual arts in the greater Ironwood area,
(encompassing Gogebic and Ontonagon Counties in Michigan and Iron and Vilas Counties in Wisconsin).
The DAP is also dedicated to promoting local and regional artists in its galleries,
gift shop, and arts education and is committed to partnering with its neighbor,
the Historic Ironwood Theatre.
Downtown Art Place is supported by the United States Regional Arts Resilience Fund Phase 2, an initiative of Arts Midwest and its peer United States Regional Arts Organizations, made possible by an anonymous donor.
