Public Art Updates & Opportunities

COVID-19 Work Projects 

Professional artists in Boulder can earn $599 to produce creative work that bolsters the “social infrastructure” of our neighborhoods by helping neighbors stay connected during physical distancing OR after restrictions are lifted, help to reconnect, recover, and adjust to new social conditions. Funding will be quickly distributed first-come first-served. Apply today!

In 2020, we will again support a series of mural commissions on residential properties, visible from public paths and streets, throughout Boulder. The call for homeowner applications is postponed until the City of Boulder resumes regular operations. Stay tuned for an update.
