About Art in Public Places
The Art in Public Places (AIPP) program is one of many culturally oriented programs in the Vail Valley. The intention of the program is to assemble a collection of works of art in public places which is educational, attractive to residents and guests, and of an overall aesthetic quality equal to the excellent international reputation the town enjoys as a resort.
The new virtual public art map provides users with numerous options for navigating and interacting with the variety of works in Vail’s public art collection. Highlights of the application include details and photos for each work of art, links to articles for specific works, accessibility on any device, and the ability for a user to view their real-time location in context to the map. This enables a virtual tour for the collection while off-site or strolling through the Town of Vail. The format of the art collection tour is intuitive to users of the site.
The Town’s public art collection includes 47 works ranging from paintings, sculptures, murals, playground components, to site-integrated art. Visit artinvail.com for your virtual tour of the collection.
