Women’s History Month Public Art Tour

    About This Tour

    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.
