Quixotic [kwik-sot-ik] Arts is the passion of Dana Cobb. A love and fascination of art of all types prompted Dana to create a place to showcase the work of artists where the art is considered to be a little different. Along with the eclectic art are a variety of curiosities, from vintage medical equipment to replica skulls/skeletons, and real mounted butterflies and a handful of bones. Realizing there also needed to be a place for those unique gifts you can’t find anywhere else, Dana has also included fun socks, jewelry, t-shirts, wind-ups, and anything that needs a weird home. The shop is a destination for those that enjoy things that have a slight oddness to them. There is also a smattering of antiques available. If something catches her eye, it will show up in the shop.

Quixotic means visionary, impractical, or impracticable,
impulsive and often rashly unpredictable, of or befitting Don Quixote. Dana has always found Don Quixote to be intriguing and loves the thought of him tilting at windmills, fighting them believing they were giants. You will see several items related to Don Quixote and windmills in the shop, with the windmill being the shop logo.

Dana strives for the shop to be a welcoming place, where all who enter feel a warmth, regardless of whether the work inside is of their liking or not. The shop is a dream that Dana wishes to share with the world.
