Santa Fe Streetscape Design
The City and County of Denver Public Works is working to identify, design, and develop pilot streetscape improvements for the Santa Fe Corridor between 8th Avenue and West Colfax Avenue.
City and County of Denver Public Works along with the Santa Fe Business Improvement District and Denver’s Art District on Santa Fe seek to commission temporary public murals located within new pedestrian spaces to be installed summer 2020 as part of pilot streetscape improvements planned for Santa Fe Drive between West 8th Avenue and West 14th Avenue. New public spaces will be created by reclaiming and redesigning segments of the roadway as places for pedestrian use. Pilot streetscape improvements may include additional pedestrian space, intersection safety improvements, planters, public parklets, public seating and bicycle parking.
Planned pilot streetscape improvements will be located within Denver’s Art District on Santa Fe. For this reason, the project team is requesting local artists to participate in creating temporary public art and place-making efforts.
Qualifications are requested from Colorado based muralists/urban artists or artist teams. Preference will be given to artists/artist teams who are members of the Santa Fe Business Improvement District or Denver’s Art District on Santa Fe. By winter 2019, the precise numbers, sizes and locations for temporary public murals located within pedestrian spaces will be finalized. Above is a rendering of planned new pedestrian spaces along Santa Fe Drive.
