One Percent For Art Program
The City of Greeley boasts over 100 memorable, thought-provoking, and enduring art projects that enrich the experience of visitors and residents alike. In 1998 the City of Greeley and City Council made a commitment to enhance the city’s public art collection by adopting a 1% for Art Program. This program sets aside one percent of the cost of new capital improvement projects as funds for acquiring, maintaining and commissioning art. The program has a solid foundation that instills a heightened sense of pride within the Greeley community.

Sculpture on Loan
In 1995, the Greeley Art Commission initiated the Sculpture on Loan Program with the placement of three pieces of art in the downtown area. This project has grown and currently over a dozen pieces are displayed each year.
At the end of each year the Greeley Art Commission solicits art pieces to be on display for the following year in our public areas and community parks. Artists lend their work for one year for a $700 honorarium.
Each year, when possible, we collect citizen input and purchase one or more sculptures to add to the permanent art collection. We now have over 100 sculptures in public places that have either been purchased by the City or donated.
