Public Art in Littleton

In 1964, the Littleton City Council established the Littleton Fine Arts Board to advise the city in developing a fine arts collection, and to assist the city in the selection and purchase of public arts for installation in public buildings, parks, and open spaces. It also arranges periodic art shows, selects art and sculpture for the Littleton Center and reviews all art donations to the city.

The first logical step for the newly-formed committee was to contact the internationally-famous sculptor Edgar Britton, whose studio was located right on Main Street. Mr. Britton’s proposal was accepted, and the Fine Arts Board had its first piece of artwork for its collection.

The Fine Arts Board will continue to advise city council on the purchase and installation of new pieces.
