About This Tour

Join Denver Public Art on a leisurely walk around Downtown Denver and learn about some of Denver’s most unique, eccentric public artworks. Why do the sidewalks sing? Why are there hubcaps on the old police station building? Why is the Big Blue Bear blue? And much more!

Calling all animal lovers! During the tour on Aug. 18, tour participants will be “treat”ed to a special appearance by an adoptable dog from Denver Animal Shelter, stopping by for pets, photos and paw-tographs. In addition to matching adoptable animals of all kinds to loving homes, Denver Animal Protection reunites lost pets with their owners, enforces Denver County animal ordinances and provides education, resources and care to community members and their pets. The Denver Animal Shelter is an open-admission shelter that is home to nearly 8,700 lost and abandoned pets each year. Learn more about their mission, get involved, view adoptable animals or make a donation.

The tour will last approximately 1 hour. Tour participants will meet at the Botero sculptures, “Man” and “Woman” on the Denver Performing Arts Complex Galleria near 14th and Curtis Streets and be led by Rudi Cerri.

$5 per person. Children under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult. No cost for children 10 and under.

Tours are rain or shine, however should conditions become dangerous because of severe weather, Denver Public Art reserves the right to cancel or delay/pause the tour. If any tour is canceled before it is 50% complete, we will reach out to you to offer tickets to an upcoming date or a refund.
