Our Community is Enriched Like Few Others
Along with its wonderful parks, Denver has a tradition of installing art to make public spaces more appealing. Former Mayor Federico Pena established the city’s Public Art Program in 1988; the city council adopted it as an ordinance in 1991 and instituted a One Percent for the Arts which requires the budget of any city construction project over $1 million to set aside 1% for public art.
Central Park now boasts 19 public art installations, see them in the gallery below, roll over each image and click to see artist details. Also check out these links for info on the development’s public art locations and the city’s public art program:
