ArtSpot

ABOUT ARTSPOT

The sidewalks of Downtown Colorado Springs see thousands of passersby on a weekly basis, but from February through April, the three-foot flowerpots that line those sidewalks remain undecorated and unplanted.

ArtSpot was launched in 2017 to enhance the pedestrian experience by filling Tejon Street’s flowerpots with cheery, locally-made works of art from February-November.

Each of the 21 sculptures in the ArtSpot exhibit is the work of a Pikes Peak Region artist, and many works depict local flora, landmarks or other aspects of the Colorado experience.

Guided Walking Tours

On select dates, explore the ArtSpot exhibit and more public art Downtown with a knowledgeable guide. For a full schedule of guided walking tours, go to DowntownCS.com/tours.
