It doesn't take long for visitors to notice the wide variety of public art on display around Denver. Whether it's a big blue bear looking into a window, the murals of 16th Street Mall, or the more historic statues in Civic Center Park, there is public art to please art enthusiasts and non-enthusiasts alike - we promise! Thanks to Denver's investment in the city's art scene, we have some of the best public art that U.S. cities have to offer and will be visiting the most iconic of Denver's 400+ public art pieces on this tour.

Join us for our Denver Art Unplugged private walking tour through the heart of downtown Denver, enjoying a tour experience that’s customized to your interests while giving you the inside scope on Denver's most infamous art and all of the controversy and behind-the-scenes stories about the art and the artists that you can handle.

Along the way, enjoy plenty of time to chat with your guide, ask questions, take pictures, and learn more about the Mile High City's vast array of public art, with some great history thrown into the mix. Begin your tour at "The Big Sweep", an iconic broom and blue dustpan near the front entrance of the Denver Art Museum and then hit the pavement, strolling down the streets of the city center with your passionate guide. 

Your tour wraps up at the Denver Performing Arts Center, home to many beloved Broadway and off-braodway productions and its own stash of controversial public art.
