Public Art in Denver

In 1988, Denver established a Public Art Program as an Executive Order, under Mayor Federico Pena. Federico must have been a great supporter of the Arts, as his order meant that 1% of any capital improvement project over $1 million (undertaken by the City) be set aside for the inclusion of art in the design and construction of these projects.
Nice one Federico. Today, the City of Denver has over 150 works of art directly attributed to the project. The Public Art program is run by the Denver Office of Cultural Affairs, and is overseen by the Denver Commission on Cultural Affairs.
