The City of Greeley celebrates artistic expression and encourages public art as a way of celebrating our community's vibrant cultural diversity. The Greeley Art Commission board is made up of volunteers appointed by City Council, representing city wards and personnel from parks and recreation, the planning commission, water and sewer board and Union Colony Civic Center staff. The board oversees the Public Art Programs and assists in discovering art that recognizes and fosters a broad range of social, cultural and historic values that define Greeley.

The Greeley Art Commission is guided by the City of Greeley’s 2009 Art Master Plan which guides and supports the integration of art that contributes to Greeley’s identity. The plan also strengthens the city’s commitment to enhance and reinforce the community’s goals, visions, and values through the provision of art. The Art Master Plan has driven major art installations such as the "Go West" art fence installed around Centennial Village, the "Art & Soul" sculpture installed in front of the Union Colony Civic Center, "Flutterby" on 10th Street and 23rd Avenue and the "Uptown Tree" beautification project along the 8th Avenue corridor.

The Art Commission recognizes the importance of art forms in public places. The Public Art collection consists of over 350 works of rotating indoor art and more than 160 pieces of outdoor art that have been donated, gifted or purchased since 1967. The collection is continually updated with new artwork as the Art Commission purchases several pieces of art annually.
