Greeley Public Art

The City of Greeley celebrates artistic expression and encourages public art as a way of applauding our community's cultural identity. Our Greeley Art Commission, a board of volunteers appointed by City Council, oversees our programs and helps us to find art which recognizes and fosters a broad range of social, cultural and historic values. We also have an Art Master Plan which guides us by enhancing and reinforcing the goals, visions, and values of the City of Greeley and its citizens through art.

The City of Greeley has over 100 pieces of artwork in its Public Art Collection that can be viewed with the online Art in Public Places map or on our online Public Art catalog.

Art collection

We recognize the importance of art forms in public places and the diversity of the public who appreciates such art. Our collection consists of over 300 works of indoor art and almost 120 pieces of outdoor art that have been donated, gifted or purchased since 1967. To keep the collection updated with current work, we purchase several pieces of art each year. We encourage the donation of public art which is memorable, thought-provoking, enduring and which can be located in a setting appropriate to the environment and the art form.
