2018 Free Walking Tours: Creative District Tour
The Greeley Historic Preservation Commission invites the public to a walking tour in the Creative District and Historic Downtown area, on Monday, July 9th at 6:30 p.m.
Get your walking shoes on for a leisurely and stimulating stroll through the heart of the Greeley Creative District and part of the historic downtown! Along the way you’ll view an amazing variety of murals, a sample of the 30+ Urban Art ‘Trees’, the City’s Art on Loan and 1% for Art sculptures. Participants will walk down the District’s Art Alley and learn about the collaborative effort between the DDA, City and community artists to produce the murals. Be sure to bring your sunglasses, camera, and curiosity! City Assistant City Manager Becky Safarik and Historic Preservation Specialist Betsy Kellums will lead this tour.
This free public tour begins in front of the Union Colony Civic Center, 701 10th Avenue. No reservations are required.
