Aurora is proud to be the home of a variety of public art displays. The Art in Public Places Program (AIPP) program is funded from a city ordinance requiring the dedication of 1 percent of the funds used to build city of Aurora construction and remodeling projects with budgets of $100,000 or more. Grants and fundraising efforts also fund city public art projects. The mission of AIPP is to capture the pulse of the community by contributing to neighborhood development and economic vitality, and by engaging the many voices of Aurora through art and culture.
Below is a link to the listing of the 300+ various public art installments in Aurora created by locally and nationally renowned artists, which enhance the city’s public spaces with works of art ranging from outdoor sculptures and murals to functional works integrated into the architecture.
