Many residents consider Greeley’s state-certified creative district the center of downtown activity, including dining, entertainment, history, art and more. What helps make that portion of our community so dynamic is our expansive indoor and outdoor public art collection.
In 2016, we noted that Greeley had 450 pieces of public art. Incredibly, that number is now 560 city-wide due to our 1% for Art Program and generous private donations. Kim Snyder, our Public Art Coordinator in the Culture, Parks and Recreation Department, says the outlook is bright, with that number likely to increase by another ten this year.
