Art on the Fence!!
Golden Fence Banner Project

“When I say artist I mean the man who is building things…some with a brush – some with a shovel – some choose a pen.” – Jackson Pollock

Each August since 1990, the Greater Golden Chamber of Commerce presents the Golden Fine Arts Festival to promote arts in Golden and to offer an opportunity for visiting downtown. Despite the Festival’s 30th anniversary year being cancelled due to COVID-19 health concerns, the Chamber recognizes the importance of this event, the artists that make it possible, and the visitation it brings to Golden. To keep the spirit of this important art event alive, the Chamber is proud to present “Art on the Fence”.

Art on the Fence highlights some of the artists that make the event possible every year and also highlights our downtown business community and the creative ways they have worked through a challenging time – including taking dining outdoors. This art project utilizes the extended dining fencing, provided by the City of Golden, to hang digital renditions of art that have been printed on mesh banners.

We invite you to experience the color and vitality of this streetscape project and to enjoy shopping and dining in Golden while you do!

Several Colorado artists have donated their images to this project! Check them out! Banners are found throughout the Golden downtown area as well as outlying areas. Click on the images to find out more about the artists and their talents.
