Thornton Public Art Collection

The Thornton Public Art Collection contains nearly 250 pieces exhibited in public facilities, parks, intersections, and transit stations through the city. The collection enhances building interiors and outdoor gathering places with a variety of quality artwork created by local and national professional artists.​

We thank the Scientific and Cultural Facilities District (SCFD) for its support of the traffic box murals.
