Research and Creative Work

In the College of Architecture and Planning at the University of Colorado Denver, students and faculty engage directly with our vibrant city, dynamic community, and magnificent landscape by working on real projects that make a real difference. 

Frederick Art Master Plan

Date: 11/8/2017 - 11/1/2017
Location: Frederick, CO

The Frederick Arts Commission was established in 2000 by the Board of Trustees to advise on the Art in Public Places Program. They advise on what art projects to pursue, where to place such art, and with which artists to commission these projects.

The art master plan proposes guidelines and principles to strengthen Frederick’s identity by reinforcing connectivity between neighborhoods, parks and community spaces. Thoughtful art placement in key trail and infrastructure systems, town gateways and neighborhood entryways, establishes the town’s cohesiveness and uniqueness as a creative community. In addition, the art master plan provides a framework for decision-making as the art commission and residents of Frederick address not only art placement, but also support for local artists.

Realizing the full potential of city-scale art integration can help ensure that Frederick maintains a strong cultural presence on a regional scale. Ultimately, the Frederick Art Master Plan will guide the placement of art in a way that both maintains Frederick’s existing values and sense of community, while continuing to strengthen its overall identity for years to come.
