BACKGROUND:
The Office of Arts and Culture is implementing Boulder’s Community Cultural Plan. Through a set of programs, including cultural grants, public art, initiatives for artists, the creative economy, and research, the Office of Arts and Culture seeks to facilitate an alignment in the community around our collective Vision for Culture: Together we will craft Boulder’s social, physical, and cultural environment to include creativity as an essential ingredient for the well being, prosperity, and joy of everyone in the community.

The Creative Neighborhoods Mural Program is an opportunity to collectively promote the unique personalities of Boulder through the commissioning of murals on private properties within Boulder’s neighborhoods. The program has three feature components: a roster of artists living in the Front Range Corridor, a property owner application, and up to $2,500 provided by the Office of Arts and Culture for each mural. In 2018, nine new projects are anticipated, one project within each of Boulder’s subcommunities. More info: https://boulderarts.org/public-art/murals/creative-neighborhoods-mural-program/
