Denver Launching New Public Art Program

The Imagine 2020 program calls for partnerships between public agencies and the private sector—not to mention residents—in delivering new public art around the city of Denver.

Ray Mark Rinaldi details the Imagine 2020 plan in a recent article, describing the Denver’s goals for expanding public art in every corner of the city.

“The plan calls for more art in just about every venue within city reach, from its buildings and theaters to its parks and even the streets themselves. In addition, it lays the groundwork for more funding of art projects, as well as incentives for planners and developers who make art a priority.”

“The plan suggests a broad review of government ‘plans, permits and codes’ to allow for more temporary art installations and to integrate art considerations into official development and neighborhood proposals.”
