Boulder had a big year for murals and street art in 2018. This year we saw great projects commissioned by commercial developers, the launch of a new City-wide mural program, as well as exciting yet unauthorized street art, community wheatpaste installation and new murals in collective art spaces. We're thrilled that so many are stepping up to create opportunities for Artists to make their mark in Boulder.
Here are ten of our favorite murals in alphabetical order from 2018, a monumetal year for public art in Boulder.
