Uptown Tree project
Uptown Tree project, funded by the City of Greeley’s One Percent for Art
program, will line the corridor along 8th Avenue between 10th Street and 16th
Street with a variety of original “art trees” and serves to beatify the corridor
between the University of Northern Colorado campus and downtown Greeley. The
trees will also serve to recognize the city’s “Tree City USA” designation. There
will be about thirty tree installations over the next four years.
Art & Soul Marble Sculpture Dedication Scheduled for November 20
the Greeley Art Commission as it honors the life and accomplishments of longtime
Greeley arts activist Jil Rosentrater with the dedication of
Art & Soul, a
distinctive set of marble sculptures by Madeline Wiener.
The Art & Soul dedication will take place on Thursday, November 20, at 6 p.m., at
the Union Colony Civic Center, 701 10th Avenue.
Art Panels Dedicated at Centennial Village
latest panels on the
Village Art Fence, 1475 A. St., were dedicated on Saturday, September 13. The
panels depict the history of water and its impact on Greeley and were designed
by local artist Lisa Cameron Russell.
“My goal is to come up with subjects that are important to the community,”
said Russell. In the case of the art fence, Greeley archivists helped find
images for Russell to recreate. The copy of each image is displayed next to each
of Russell’s art pieces.
Watch our Amazing Video of the Greeley’s Sweethearts Installation
The City of Greeley is committed to public art. Each year, as part of the One
Percent for Art Program, it commissions artists to create and install artwork
that enhances the natural beauty of our public areas. The goal is to have the
artwork outside and accessible to everyone.
Thanks to this program, pieces such as artist Amos Robinson’s Greeley’s
Sweethearts kinetic bike sculpture can be installed and appreciated for
generations to come.
Greeley’s Sweethearts was installed in August 2014 and is located in the
Josephine B. Jones park, 52nd Ave. Ct. Read more about the sculpture on
Greeley Unexpected’s blog.
