Creative Neighborhoods: Murals

The program facilitates a collaboration between homeowners and artists to create new artwork on residential properties, visible from public paths and streets, throughout Boulder. Using a first-come, first-served selection process, mural sites are identified for residential properties throughout all of Boulder’s subcommunities. Homeowners select regional artists to work with from the City-approved mural artist roster.

Program Background

Murals are widely recognized tools to convey the pulse of a community. Activated in Boulder, murals create an opportunity to collectively promote the unique personalities of the city. In 2018, Creative Neighborhoods: Murals was launched to support public art in all of Boulder’s unique neighborhoods, diversify the types of artwork found in the city, and provide opportunities to regional artists.

Funding for the Creative Neighborhoods Mural Program is made available through the Community Culture and Safety Tax.
