“Beautiful Broomfield” George Di Ciero Building Mural
In the fall of 2023, The City and County of Broomfield put out a call for a vinyl wrapped mural design to be installed in the George DiCiero City and County Building interior public stairwell that incorporated the existing solar calendar element and showcase themes relating to Broomfield, collaboration and civic engagement. From the submissions received, two semi-finalists emerged: "Beautiful Broomfield" by Stacey Reynolds and "Onward and Upward" by Julia Williams. To determine the winner, a three-week public vote was conducted on the Broomfield Voice page, which garnered an unprecedented response of over 3,640 votes, marking the highest level of engagement ever witnessed on the Broomfield Voice platform. "Beautiful Broomfield" by Stacey Reynolds emerged as the chosen design.
The mural was professionally installed by exterior graphics and vinyl wrap company, InkMonstr, in November 2023.
Community-Powered Art at Broomfield Community Park
A community-initiated mural project was installed on the wooden building in Broomfield’s Community Ball Field Park in July 2023. Three of the four finalists were selected by the Arts, History, Cultural Council. The fourth piece was selected through a community vote on the Broomfield Voice page. Community-Powered Art at Broomfield Community Park is a Community-Initiated Public Art project submitted by John Hubbard on behalf of Broomfield Bikes, a local nonprofit organization.
This project is part of the Community-Initiated Public Art Idea Proposals program, designed to gather ideas from community members for public art projects in Broomfield. In partnership with the Arts, History and Cultural Council, these ideas are explored, vetted and prioritized each fall to guide the upcoming year’s public art project list. The murals will be installed sometime in mid-May.

Little Art Houses Installed on the ARTery
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 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.
