Help shape the future of public art in Castle Rock; complete a survey before Nov. 20

Take the Public Art Survey!

October is National Arts and Humanities Month, and bringing distinctive public art to the community is the mission of the Town’s Public Art Commission. To celebrate and stay in touch with the vision of Castle Rock residents, the commission is now asking for the public’s input on art in the community.

The Public Art Commission identifies priorities and goals related to acquiring art for public buildings and parks in Town. Thanks to the Public Art Commission, the Town currently has more than 30 pieces of public art, which include murals, sculptures, utility box wraps and more. 

Help determine if public art in Castle Rock is headed in the right direction. A brief questionnaire is available online at CRgov.com/PublicArt through Friday, Nov. 20. Complete the survey, and help shape the vision and goals of the Town’s Public Art Commission. Your input is essential to ensure the community’s public art reflects the values and preferences of Castle Rock residents. The information will also be used as the Town continues to plan and implement future art initiatives.

The Town’s Public Art Plan identifies an outline for creating art experiences that are accessible to the public, create community vibrancy and reflect the charm, heritage and beauty of Castle Rock. A key goal identified in this plan is to encourage public engagement for building a strong public art program. 

The Town also partners with Douglas County Art Encounters to provide rotating exhibits of sculptures in retail and civic areas within the county to promote public interest in art, develop community pride and draw visitors to the areas where the sculptures are displayed. 

Public art in Castle Rock is funded by the Philip S. Miller Trust Fund. No taxpayer money is used to purchase public art.
