Public Art at Red Rocks

Denver’s Public Art Program was established in 1988 as an Executive Order under Mayor Federico Peña. The order, enacted into Ordinance by Denver City Council in 1991, directs that 1% of any capital improvement project over $1 million undertaken by the City, be set aside for the inclusion of art. Over the past 30 years these artworks, along with the historic and donated works of art, make up the City’s Public Art Collection, including pieces at Red Rocks Park and Amphitheatre. A few examples of public art at Red Rocks are below. To learn more information about Denver Public Art, visit
