Dumpsters covered in colorful murals, pictorial crosswalks painted across a busy city street and tree trunks transformed into music boxes. These are examples of public art pieces you may have noticed in Denver, each made possible by a citywide pilot program called P.S. You Are Here.
Denver Arts & Venues, the city agency in charge of many public venues and cultural activities, grants funds to new projects every year. They must be outdoors, reflect the community and be temporary. This art disappears, typically within three months to a year.
