Happy Cities: Denver

Art Event

Shiny Happy City

The Happy City Project was inspired by Charles Montgomery’s influential publication “Happy City,” which questions the intersection between urban design and the science of happiness. Denver, along with many other cities, is responding to these questions with “Art for the People” to provide art experiences in public spaces. The hope is that people will come together. With installation sites in Denver’s streets, alleyways, billboards and more, the event programming kicked off last week but will run through June. See below for this month’s events and visit happycitydenver.com for more details.
