Denver's Public Art
Discovering Denver's public art initiative is an absolute must when you visit the Mile High City. In 1988, Denver realized the importance of having art displayed through the city and instituted an Art Ordinance in order to continue the funding of the program as more and more businesses were established in the area.
Today, Denver is home to over 300 pieces of public art which can be found in every corner of the city. While you are there, be sure to check out these notable pieces.
