Celebrating 20 Years!

We are celebrating our 20th Anniversary.  Art in Public Places (APP) was created in April, 1995. APP is intended to encourage and enhance artistic expression and appreciation and to add value to the Fort Collins community through acquiring, exhibiting, and maintaining public art.

Please visit our Image Gallery or print a map and visit the Art in Public Place art collection.

If you are an artist or interested in art updates and events, please sign-up for our newsletters.

 

Pianos About Town

Pianos About Town is a collaborative effort between the Fort Collins Art in Public Places Program and community partner Bohemian Foundation. This exciting project brings together visual art and music for the public to enjoy. We are currently in our 5th season! For updates and to share your photos and videos of the pianos in action, please visit us on Facebook at Facebook.com/PianosAboutTown.

Help us care for the pianos! If you enjoy playing the pianos, help us protect them by closing the keyboard cover after each use and using the attached tarp to cover the piano in times of bad weather—Thank you!
