The Art in Public Places (AIPP) program is one of many culturally oriented programs in the Vail Valley.
The intention of the program is to assemble a collection of works of art in public places which is educational, attractive to residents and guests, and of an overall aesthetic quality equal to the excellent international reputation the town enjoys as a resort.
The program is under the direction of a five-member board which meets monthly to discuss AIPP projects and direction. Members of the public are encouraged to attend the meetings which are held in the Vail Town Council Chambers on the first Monday of every month.

The Town’s public art collection includes over 55 works ranging from painting, sculptures, murals, playground components, to site-integrated art. A color printed map of the town of Vail’s public art collection is now available at the Vail Village and Lionshead Welcome Centers or may be downloaded on this site. Featuring 36 works of art in a walkable map of Vail Village and Lionshead, as well as the art beyond town center, the map is a resource for enjoying Vail’s abundance of public art.
