Denver Public Art Tours
LOVE PUBLIC ART?
INTERESTED IN BECOMING A DENVER PUBLIC ART DOCENT?
Art and architecture lovers are invited to participate in a series of free walking and biking Public Art Tours throughout the city each summer. These guided tours focus on small segments of the Denver Public Art Collection and give citizens and visitors the opportunity to venture inside venues such as the Ellie Caulkins Opera House and Colorado Convention Center, and outdoor venues such as Civic Center Park, to view new and historic works and hear the intimate details of their creation and installation.
The Denver Public Art Program is one of the most respected in the country, with a collection of nearly 350 pieces, found along streets, over bridges, in and around buildings old and new, in all mediums. Tours are free, but most are limited to 15 people.
