Murals Take Shape Around Former Hospital Site
Art enhances the visual profile of the project and provides an active space for community engagement
As part of the city's plans to maintain the former Boulder Community Health (BCH) site, the city's Office of Arts and Culture has commissioned several artists to paint murals on sections of the fence around the perimeter of the project site. The mural project is an opportunity to integrate art into the site while it remains vacant, helping to enhance the visual profile of the project and providing an active space for community engagement.
Artists Jason Graves and Remington Robinson, both of Boulder, started working on a city-commissioned mural at the former BCH site the first week of August. The mural project, which will include four additional murals over the coming weeks, creates an opportunity to use the perimeter fence as a canvas and to maintain the site while the city decommissions the buildings and prepares for deconstruction of the hospital building. The city has 24-hour security of the building in place.
