In Observance of Black History Month We Reflect on Latino and Black Solidarity in Denver

Did you know that Denver’s Public Art Program was established in 1988 as an Executive Order under Mayor Federico Peña? The order was enacted into Ordinance by Denver City Council in 1991 under the leadership of Mayor Wellington E. Webb, and First Lady of Denver, Wilma J. Webb, which directs that 1% of any capital improvement project over $1 million undertaken by the City, be set aside for the inclusion of art.

This led to Denver Arts & Venues (A&V), which administers the curation of Denver’s Public Art Collection which is inspiring, refreshing, bold, and all around us! Over $40 million has been invested in public art for Denver residents by Denver residents, making A&V one of the finest examples of intercultural and innovative leadership.
