Public Arts Mural Project

The Public Arts Mural Program is a joint program between Mountain View Core Knowledge School and the Cañon City Stormwater Program. Its purpose is to engage local students and the public in environmental education by creating murals around the theme “Clean Environment and the People and Animals That Depend On It”. The artwork can incorporate area attractions, people, animals and the environment. The murals will replace most of the existing murals at the 4th Street Viaduct. One existing mural which is still in good shape will be touched up.

Chosen Artwork

Artwork chosen for the murals may be used as part of a collage of artwork or may be stand-alone pieces. Murals will be painted on six pylons measuring 2 by 3 by 8 feet, each with four faces, and one 23 by 8 feet support with two 2 feet end supports.
