Urban Arts Fund Mission

In the Spirit of IMAGINE 2020

The Urban Arts Fund (UAF) is a graffiti prevention and youth development program which facilitates the creation of new murals in perpetually vandalized areas throughout the City and County of Denver. The UAF provides access to positive, creative experiences for youth and transforms dilapidated areas into well-tended and active community gathering spaces.  As of 2015, with the help of over 1,500 children, the program has facilitated approximately 100 new murals and abated 110,000 square feet of walls from vandalism.
