WPAA - Ute Pass Cultural Center MURAL PROJECT - COMPLETE
in June, 2015, local artist Lois Sprague embarked on a creative journey to paint a “larger than life” sized mural on the exterior east wall of the Ute Pass Cultural Center. The 148' mural depicted life in the Ute Pass Region, beginning with the Ute Indians in the 1800s, and spanned through the economic boom of the 1950’s. Completed in September, 2015, the formal dedication was held in October of that year. After remarks by honored guests, Mayor Neil Levy and City Manger, David Buttery, the mural received a Native American blessing by Roland McCook, Ute Heritage Leader whose face also appears on the first panel of the mural.

Art Bench Project (ongoing)
The Woodland Park Arts Alliance provides several painted benches, located in public right-of-ways where local residents and visitors to Woodland Park can rest and enjoy our great views of the Pikes Peak region.
We extend a special THANK YOU to the City of Woodland Park for taking responsibility for placement and maintaining the art benches throughout the year!
In the near future, WPAA will be looking to continue this Public Art Project and expand the already public art benches located throughout downtown and local businesses.
If you would like to sponsor a bench, or just provide funds to help with the Public Art Project, please donate on this website or contact us.

Midland Pavilion (ongoing)
The Woodland Park Arts Alliance would like to help fund the installation of a wireless LED, mobile lighting system in the Midland Pavilion. This new technology can serve a dual purpose — when not in use in the Pavilion, it can be used in the Ute Pass Cultural Center to greatly enhance the many performances at this inside venue.
If an individual or business wishes to cover the cost of the entire system, we would be most happy to “name” the lighting system after that individual or business.
Formal bid to complete: $23,750.00
