Art on the Move
We have extended our call for artists to participate in the Art on the Move program! All applications must be submitted online through the Call for Entry form on CaFE.
During this challenging time, we have delayed the launch of the Shock Art program. Visit the Shock Art page for submission requirements and program updates.
Resilient St. Vrain Project - Art Masterplan
AIPP has contracted with NineDOTArts out of Denver to compile an Art Master Plan with input from Community members. The Resilient St. Vrain Project project spans the St. Vrain Greenway from Airport Road to Sandstone Ranch. AIPP is actively investigating opportunities for artwork throughout this corridor that might complement the gorgeous natural beauty of the area, while honoring the flood and supporting community members in their movement along the trail system. Opportunities for public involvement will be posted on City sites.
Kensington Park - Remediation
Artists Mario Miguel Echevarria and Susan Daley will be revisiting the structure and protection of "The Unity Project" in 2020. The piece, which is more than 20 years old, is in desperate need of structural repair to ensure its existence for years to come. The remediation project will start in 2020.
9th and Alpine Mural - Redesign and sealant
AIPP has consulted with Denver's Urban Arts Fund to discuss mural policy and procedures in light of significant damages to the 2018 mural at the underpass of 9th Street and Alpine Street. Work is underway to redesign, repaint, seal, and protect the mural for years of enjoyment.
Maintenance and Conservation
Maintenance of the City's Art in Public Places collection is an endless task. As the collection grows and ages, the task of maintenance grows! Have you seen something that doesn't look quite right? Perhaps it's broken, tagged, or a bolt may simply be missing. Please let us know by contacting 303-651-8924 or email to alert us. Thank you!
Flood Project - Installation
The flood of 2013 hit Longmont hard. In many ways, we are still recovering from this natural disaster. The Art in Public Places Commission sought to honor the flood with artwork that would celebrate resiliency, as well as the way the community and beyond came together during this difficult time. Artist Joshua Wiener was chosen by a selection panel with his proposal of "Rejuvenation," celebrating the power of the water, the strength of the people and the community. This project is now installed and scheduled to be dedicated in 2020 and will be in the Dickens Farm Nature Area.
