About This Tour

In recognition of Women’s History Month and International Women’s Day (March 8), here’s a self-guided tour of Denver Public Art pieces by and about women. Our collection features original works by many talented sculptors, painters, muralists and designers.

The oldest piece in our collection is by a woman—Elsie Ward Hering’s “The Boy and a Frog” (1898). More recently, we dedicated Valerie Savarie and Ali Khawaja’s “Time is a Friend of the Future, Not an Enemy of the Past” and Maureen Hearty’s “A Life Cycle Story” in 2021.

Below you will find a list and map of artworks celebrating women, such as “First Rose” by Susan Cooper, and works created by women artists or artist teams including women. Please note that this list is not exhaustive.
