The Public Art Commission (PAC) is responsible for the City of Golden’s Art in Public Places Program. Public art creates a vibrant atmosphere that contributes to the quality and cultural identity of our community. It is inspired by a variety of goals including encouraging cultural expression and inspiring a sense of civic pride.
Artists bring a unique perspective to the built and natural landscape of our City and create memorable spaces for residents, businesses, and visitors. Enhancing the character of community through public art directly supports cultural tourism and economic development.
The PAC has the responsibility of promoting, selecting, acquiring and maintaining public art in the fulfillment of the City’s Art in Public Places program.
