Help select the George Di Ciero City Building Mural
The Arts and History team is commissioning an artist to design a mural that will be installed inside the George Di Ciero City Building later this year. The mural will incorporate an existing solar calendar element and showcase themes relating to Broomfield, collaboration and civic engagement. This mural will be installed on the wall surrounding the winding, circular staircase and is a significant aesthetic element that will welcome staff, City Council and community members to the civic building. This mural will be a vinyl application of a digital design.
Two semi-finalist have been selected, and the finalist will be selected by the public through a community vote on the Broomfield Voice page. These murals were designed by local Colorado artists to capture and represent Broomfield’s beauty. Visit BroomfieldVoice.com/Art-in-Public-Places to cast your vote and learn more about the project! The survey closes on Sept. 29 at 5 p.m.

Community-Powered Art at Broomfield Community Park
A community-initiated mural project was installed on the wooden building in Broomfield’s Community Ball Field Park in July 2023. Three of the four finalists were selected by the Arts, History, Cultural Council. The fourth piece was selected through a community vote on the Broomfield Voice page. Community-Powered Art at Broomfield Community Park is a Community-Initiated Public Art project submitted by John Hubbard on behalf of Broomfield Bikes, a local nonprofit organization.
This project is part of the Community-Initiated Public Art Idea Proposals program, designed to gather ideas from community members for public art projects in Broomfield. In partnership with the Arts, History and Cultural Council, these ideas are explored, vetted and prioritized each fall to guide the upcoming year’s public art project list. The murals will be installed sometime in mid-May.

Little Art Houses Installed on the ARTery
Five Little Houses were installed on the ARTery in early June. Four of the houses were installed along the first phase of the ARTery trail and one at the Broomfield Depot Museum. The goal for the Little House project is to create ‘Little Houses’, each with a different theme and aesthetic, to create unexpected moments of joy, wonder and curiosity. These boxes will feature rotating art and history exhibits, artifacts from Sister City Ueda, Japan and Twin City, Broomfield, UK, and the last is acting as a Little Free Library by the Depot Museum. Little Houses are built on inspiration from the national Little Free Libraries program.
