The vision of the Broomfield Public Art Program is to enhance the image of Broomfield and foster a “sense of place” for its residents and visitors.
The mission is to create a more visually pleasing environment and to expand the opportunities for residents and visitors to experience quality works of art.
The Public Art Committee (PAC) created a Public Art Master Plan and Guidelines to facilitate acquisition of public art for the City and County of Broomfield which were adopted by City Council in 2004.

The first official public art project completed in 2006 by the PAC was the Art Bench Project, a series of ten benches installed in eight parks and open space locations throughout the county. This project was an important introduction to the value and appeal of public art for the community, and highlighted the importance of community identity for its citizens.
Since completion of the first project, the PAC has completed several other projects that resulted in the installation of Birds by David Boyer in Interlocken East Park, Our Solar System-Myths and Matter by Joe McGrane at Centex Park, Sky Totem by Warren Cullar in the Broomfield Xeriscape Demonstration Garden located at One DesCombes Drive, and Leaf and Feather by Airworks Studio in the City and County Building at One DesCombes Drive, Broomfield's Brozovich Beacon in Anthem Park, Global Supremacy at Quail Creek and the Broomfield Sculpture Trail located just south of the dog park in Community Park.
