Works of Art

Virtually everywhere you turn in Durango, art catches the eye. Unlike most cities, our’s is blessed by an abundance of public artwork. Its most dramatic manifestation is in the sculptures that have taken root on the sidewalks of downtown, all over the Fort Lewis College campus and in many of our city parks. They range from realistic interpretations of people and animals to abstractions encouraging deep thought. Collectively, the works offer a glimpse into the soul and history of a town that has long put a value on works of art.
