CITY OF DENTON PUBLIC ART PROGRAM
The City of Denton’s Public Art Program was established in 2006 in recognition of the role that public art already plays in Denton, by interpreting its history, character, and aspirations, and of the importance of integrating public art into the daily lives of its citizens. Details about these works can be found by searching the city of Denton’s Public Art database.
KEEP DENTON BEAUTIFUL ARTSCAPES INITIATIVE
ARTSCAPES is a community beautification initiative, created to inspire civic pride and abate graffiti in Denton’s public spaces by painting new murals throughout the city.
Keep Denton Beautiful, with input from Denton volunteers and neighborhoods, has launched a new effort to create painted mural artwork in key gateway points and neighborhood areas around Denton. The Artscapes Mural Art Initiative targets high traffic and graffiti-prone sites for new murals, using a street art aesthetic to achieve the following goals:
- beautify and enliven public spaces
- abate graffiti, and
- inspire community action to keep our city clean and beautiful.
