Broomfield Public Art

CALL TO ARTISTS: Traffic Box Wrap Project

The City and County of Broomfield in partnership with the Public Art Committee is seeking artists to create work to transform traffic boxes into public artworks throughout the community.

Public art takes ordinary spaces and enhances the visual landscape and character of the city while promoting community dialogue and is accessible to everyone.

The Traffic Box Public Art pilot program’s goals are to:

  • Connect community members together through art experiences in unexpected places
  • Expand the reach of visual art in the community
  • Provide a broader reach for artists to display their work, including professional, non-professional and student artwork

The Arts & History division, in partnership with Community Development and Communications, developed a pilot process for privately-funded murals in Broomfield.

The mural will measure approximately 16 ft high x 35 ft wide
Artist: Austin Zucchini-Fowler
Art Installation: June 21

This mural is an opportunity to highlight an individual that inspires the Colorado community. Charlie Blackmon is an outstanding athlete but also a leader in the community with an encouraging and positive outlook. Incorporated in the baseball bat is a motivational quote “Never stop dreaming”. This mural will be done in my unique colorful, pointillism style.
