Art in Public Places – Celebrating Over 20 Years
Have you seen a crane at Riverside and Mulberry lately? How about the rock sculptures that are beginning to dot the site? Artist Robert Tully has been installing his Mulberry Gateway project. The sculptures are intended to serve as a gateway to Fort Collins. The artwork is a series of sandstone sculptures with colored-metal accents, that will be illuminated for a nighttime presence. Mulberry Street (State Highway 14) is part of the Scenic Byway leading up the Poudre Canyon. While continuing the theme of the stone used on the Mulberry Bridge, the sculptures are also inspired by the prominent buff sandstone cliffs where Highway 14 splits from Highway 287. Once the sculptures are installed, landscaping will finish the design of the corner.
Pianos About Town is a collaborative effort between the Fort Collins Art in Public Places Program and community partners Bohemian Foundation and the Downtown Develoment Authority. This exciting project brings together visual art and music for the public to enjoy. We currently in our 7th season! For updates and to share your photos and videos of the pianos in action, please visit us on Facebook.
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 and overnight—Thank you!
