ARTery Sidewalk Mural

The City and County of Broomfield in partnership with the Arts, History, and Cultural Council (AHCC) is commissioning large-scale sidewalk murals and accompanying stencils for community installation along the first phase of the Broomfield ARTery creative corridor project. Artist(s) will participate in community engagement and interaction during both design phase and installation. See the call to artists here! 

This project incorporates a mentorship option for emerging artists to pair with lead professional artists to build capacity and gain experience in large-scale public art installations, as well as have their own artwork included in final mural installations.

This Art, History, and Culture Council Committee selected finalists for the ARTery sidewalk mural project. The artists selected for this project are Katerina Vuletich and Paige Brown, Ratha Sok and Jennifer Vasquez and Jennifer Chaparro and Camie Rigirozzi. This project was built in coordination with Parks, Recreation and Senior Services and Open Space and Trails, as well as artist selection through the Arts, History and Cultural Council. For the call, artists self-identified as either professional or emerging to be paired for mentorships, and all three semi-finalist pairs were selected as finalists. All three pairs participated in community engagement that ultimately informed their designs. Installation dates, volunteer information, and final locations will be announced in the next few weeks.

Traffic Box Wrap Project - Phase 2

Project Description

The City and County of Broomfield in partnership with the Arts, History and Cultural Council is seeking artists to create work to transform traffic boxes into public artworks throughout the community. This program is intended to continue in perpetuity, with each installation’s lifespan estimated at 1-3 years with favorable conditions. As each installation ages or weathers, there will be regular evaluations and new calls to replace and install new vinyl wraps with artwork across the city. 

In 2021, a pilot phase was launched with the goal of wrapping 10 traffic boxes in Broomfield with artwork. Through lessons learned with that process, this second phase of the traffic box project will incorporate updated processes to further the evolution of the project. 

The selection process will utilize a Request for Proposal for an Arts, History and Cultural Council subcommittee to review, score and select semi-finalists and finalists. Submissions will be divided into two categories, submissions for artists 18 and over, and those 17 and under. Of the total number of traffic boxes, up to 25% may be designated for artists in the 17 and under category, and the Arts, History and Cultural Council reserves the right to assign selections from both categories to any number of available boxes. 

At least two selected semi-finalists from each submission category will be presented to the public for voting on the Broomfield Voice and shared on social media platforms. All selected semi-finalists will be notified prior to the public vote and are encouraged to share the voting information on their own platforms.

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 this week 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.
