Why is Public Art Important?

Public art contributes to a city’s visual character, texture, and history.  In Durango, it is an essential part of our identity, history, and cultural heritage.  Public art contributes to our economic base and enhances the public appreciation of art.  Incorporating visual art into our communal spaces fosters our sense of community and challenges us to engage in a meaningful way.  We invite you to experience Durango’s Public Art.
