The City of Greeley embraces 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 and the water and sewer board. 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 2023 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 220 pieces of outdoor art that have been donated, gifted or purchased since the 1970’s. The collection is continually updated with new artwork as the art commission purchases several pieces of art annually.

New Sculpture Installed at Josephine B. Jones Park

A new sculpture, approved by the City of Greeley and the Art Commission, has been donated by a private citizen and was installed December 4 at Josephine B.  Park, 2631 52nd Avenue (

The park, which is sentimental to the donor’s family and friends, has not had new art in many years. The 11-foot-tall figurative bronze sculpture titled "Committed" was first created by artist Denny Haskew in 1994 with a limited edition of seven castings; one of which was purchased by the donor.

Haskew’s artwork conveys his innermost being. It is intensely personal and honest. His recurring themes are “spirit, love, forgiveness, healing, relationship, endurance, the sacredness of the human spirit, and the strength in each of us; the power of all that is natural.”

Watch for more information about a reception in 2024.

Haskew’s sculpture, "Committed," depicts a Native American – a member of the Dog Soldier Society, sometimes called a "Sash Wearer.” The bronze is newly installed at Josephine B. Jones Park, north of Highway 34.
