Program Allows Enjoyment of Community Collection of Art in Public Locations
STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, COLORADO-July 17, 2018-The City of Steamboat Springs is accepting
proposals for public art to be placed on city-owned (public) property through Friday, August 17, 2018.
“Steamboat Springs has a strong desire to display works of art that can be appreciated by the
community,” expressed Winnie DelliQuadri, assistant to the city manager. “Through this process,
we’re able to grow the collection of pieces; but more importantly, can ensure that all works will be
maintained for generations to come.”
Proposals are being accepted through Friday, August 17, 2018. Applicants must submit
an application (PDF) and associated additional information including photographs, site plans,
maintenance requirements, and budget, etc. via email or drop off at City Hall, 137 10th Street in
Steamboat Springs. The city’s Public Art Policy (PDF) which provides guidance on this process, as
well as the Public Art Donation Application (PDF) can be found on the website.
Public art is defined in its broadest sense as any original creation of visual art that is acquired with
public monies or a combination of public/private funding; that is donated or loaned to the city’s Public
Art Collection; or that is a privately sponsored artwork that is proposed to be located on publicly
owned land.
For this purpose, works of public art may include but are not limited to sculpture, painting, mural,
graphic arts, mosaics, photography (film and video), crafts, mixed media, fountains, and earth works
and environment installations. It may be temporary or permanent, located inside or outside of a public
building, or located outside on public land.
Appropriate city departments will be consulted to evaluate the proposal, and a curatorial group will
make recommendations to Parks & Recreation Commission and/or City Council for final approval.
Don’t plan on submitting a proposal, but interested in preserving the city’s public art? The Steamboat
Springs Public Art Maintenance Endowment Fund, housed at the Yampa Valley Community
