Come and See What We Mean
Denver's Public Art Program was established in 1988 as an Executive Order under Mayor Federico Pena. The order directed that 1% of any capital improvement project over $1 million undertaken by the City be set aside for the inclusion of art in the design and construction of these projects. Over the past years, the City has installed over 150 works of art under this program. These works, along with historic and donated works of art, make up the City's Public Art Collection. The Public Art Program is a program of the Denver Office of Cultural Affairs, and is overseen by the Denver Commission on Cultural Affairs.
