Public Art Updates & Opportunities

Dailey and Yates mural in progressCreative Neighborhoods: Murals

In 2020, we will again support a series of mural commissions on residential properties, visible from public paths and streets, throughout Boulder. Interested in hosting a mural? Homeowners with a publicly visible site can apply to have a mural on their property. Applications open June 29 and will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis. 

COVID-19 Work Projects 

In response to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on artists in the community, the Office of Arts + Culture designed this program to quickly deliver small stipends for professional artists to develop creative projects in their neighborhood. There are currently 66 projects in a range of creative disciplines happening throughout the city!
