Guided art walks hosted by Art in Public Places continue each Wednesday at 11 a.m. through Aug. 26. Meet at the Vail Village Welcome Center on the top level of the parking structure for this free guided tour of Vail Village and the public art collection.
After an introduction to the Colorado Ski and Snowboard Museum, the tour winds its way through the Village with discussions of the history of the Vail Valley, the founding of Vail Mountain, the master planning of the Village and the importance of site-specific art.
The town’s public art collection includes 45 works ranging from paintings, sculptures, murals and playground components to site-integrated art. The tour lasts approximately one hour. The town’s public art collection map is available at the Vail Village and Lionshead Welcome Centers.
