VAIL — Free weekly Wednesday Art Walks with the town of Vail’s Art in Public Places coordinator meet at 3:30 p.m. each Wednesday afternoon. They will occur through March 30 at the newly remodeled Vail Village Welcome Center, on the top level of the parking structure. The walk includes a tour of Vail Village and lasts approximately one hour.
The walking tour of Vail Village and the public art collection begins with an introduction to the Colorado Ski & Snowboard Museum. The tour then winds its way through the village, with discussions on 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 more than 40 works ranging from paintings, sculptures and murals to playground components and site-integrated art.
The hour-long tour also includes a stop at the ninth annual Vail Winterfest Ice Theater exhibition, presented in coordination with Triumph Partners. The outdoor theater features film projections on a screen created from ice and sculpted oversized chairs and benches on the Gore Creek Promenade.
