Brief Description

The City of Greeley is committed to linking the University of Northern Colorado (UNC) campus to downtown Greeley with a trail of artwork for pedestrians, cyclists and motorists to enjoy. This part of the Downtown/UNC Art Walk corridor has been in collaboration with Community Development’s 8th Avenue improvements and the Downtown Development Authority. The Uptown Tree program allows the versatility needed to help create the art corridor. The first “planting” of trees along the corridor in 2014 included ten trees that added interest, form, color and fun. We now have a total of 28 trees and are calling for up to three more sculptural art trees to complete this project. Artists are invited to apply their creative energies to finalize this series of Art Trees.
