Stranger Reduction Zone by Timothy C. Flood

The Broomfield Art in Public Places program enlivens public space, nurtures community identity, and contributes to a vibrant city through reflecting community spirit, enriching conversations, engaging community, and elevating a sense of belonging.

In partnership with the Public Art Committee, Creative Broomfield continually explores opportunities to grow and maintain the Broomfield public art collection. With over 40 pieces owned by the city, the collection boasts various kinds of artwork created by talented and diverse artists.


What's the Latest Project?

In early 2021, the City and County of Broomfield in partnership with the Public Art Committee announced a call to artists to create work to transform ten traffic boxes into public artworks throughout the community.

The goals for this pilot of the Traffic Box Wrapping Project are:

  • To connect community members together through art experiences in unexpected places
  • Expand the reach of visual art in the community
  • Provide a broader reach for artists to display their work, including professional, non-professional and student artwork

Three of the ten final designs: Busy Heading Home by Joe Ziegler, Wildflower Whimsy by Stacey Reynolds and Broomfield 3021 by James Walker

Over 60 works of art were submitted by artists across the Front Range, with over half from Broomfield. Through a rigorous selection process, the Public Art Committee selected nine submissions as finalists, and three works by young artists as semi-finalists for the tenth traffic box to be put forward for a community vote. With almost 1,000 total votes, the tenth and final design was selected in early August.

Foxes at Night by Elia Junyent (community vote winner for youth designs)

All ten boxes will be installed in fall 2021. Visit the Creative Broomfield website to view all ten designs, and for more information. Thank you to all the artists and art enthusiasts that participated in this project!
