Sculpture on Loan
In 1995, the Art Commission initiated the Sculpture on Loan Program with the placement of three pieces of art in the downtown area. Currently, over a dozen pieces are being displayed each year.
At the end of each year the Art Commission solicits art pieces to be on display for the following year in our public areas and community parks. Artists lend their work to the City for one year for a $700 honorarium and in return the City agrees to publicize their work.
Each year with citizen input, the City purchases one or more sculptures to add to the permanent art collection. Greeley now has 25 sculptures in public places. They've either been purchased by the City—over half of the pieces are “People’s Choice” from the annual Sculpture on Loan Program—or donated by Greeley citizens.

This piece was specifically designed with Greeley in mind. Blue Gramma grass is native to this city, and this sculpture exemplifies the nature of it.
Horticulture meets sculpture in ‘Curly Sprokus’. Produced to be a realistic and representational steel plant, this piece reflects the artist’s holistic and spiritual views.
