LAFAYETTE BOULEVARD

Artist Joshua Wiener of Boulder Colorado has been selected to create an inspiring gateway artwork that will evoke neighborhood pride, ownership and diversity. The goal of the Fairmount Park Neighborhood is to be a safe, aesthetically appealing, fiscally viable, family-oriented diverse and integrated community with excellent educational, social, recreational, and cultural opportunities, fostering a strong and diverse residential and business community with concern for ecological stewardship.  The Lafayette Gateway artwork will aspire to this goal.

PROJECT SITE: The identified site for the artwork is in the triangular median area west of an existing round-about on Lafayette Boulevard.
