A Map Helps Cortez Locals Find Murals—And Brings Business Downtown
- Local Champion: Cortez Retail Enhancement Association
- Date Funded: July 24, 2023
- Grant Amount: $1,600
Downtown Cortez boasts 16 murals in an eight-block stretch. These works of art could serve as attractions to increase foot traffic in the Main Street area—if only folks knew where they were! A local business advocate and community arts group volunteer suggested that a map and brochure—as well as a digital app—could solve this problem by creating a kind of art walking tour. LOR’s support will help with the cost of producing the map and brochures, helping to bring awareness and additional business to Main Street.
