In May 2006, the City of Duluth designated a cultural pathway in honor of Duluth’s native son, Bob Dylan, to commemorate his 65th birthday. Since then, a group of citizens has raised private dollars to create and install 30 street signs to mark the pathway.
The 1.8 mile Bob Dylan Way winds through Duluth’s downtown, extending from Michigan Street at 5th Avenue West to 15th Avenue East and London Road. It follows segments of three major arteries: Michigan Street, Superior Street and London Road (Historical Highway 61) linking cultural assets from the Depot to the history Armory and helping to create a comprehensive vision for Duluth’s vibrant arts community.
An exhibit about Bob Dylan Way is at Fitger’s located at 600 East Superior Street in downtown Duluth.
