Vail's Summer Art Walks begin Wednesday

VAIL — Starting today, visitors and locals alike can meet at the Vail Village Visitor Information Center on the top level of the parking structure each Wednesday morning for an hour-long, free guided tour of Vail Village and the public art collection.

After an introduction to the Colorado Ski & Snowboard Museum, the tour winds its way through Vail Village and has discussions about 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 over 40 works and includes painting, sculptures, murals, playground components and site-integrated art.

The tour lasts approximately one hour and begins at 11 a.m.

The town’s art collection may also be viewed on a google map at www.artinvail.com.

For more information, contact Molly Eppard, Art in Public Places coordinator, by emailing meppard@vailgov.com or calling 970-479-2344.
