Boulder Public Art Program Calls for Artists

The Boulder Office of Arts and Culture invites artists to apply this fall to participate in its public art program.

Colorado-based artists are invited to apply to create artwork for the Valmont Park Rain Garden. A total project budget of $18,750 is available. The deadline to apply is September 19.

Experiments in Public Art is open for applications until September 25. This year’s program partners with FARM TO SPACESHIP, a local arts acceleration program, to focus on COVID rebound and community connection. A cohort of approximately 20 participants will be selected. Applicants must live or work in Boulder. A total of up to $50,000 is available.

Artists living in the Front Range corridor of Colorado and Wyoming are invited to submit their qualifications for the Mural Artist List. This list serves as a resource to identify the most suitable artists for new art commissions across the city, including the Creative Neighborhoods Mural program. The deadline is October 15.
