Dedication of the community mural | colorado springs

The Colorado Springs Police Department (CSPD) is thrilled to announce the dedication of its community mural on June 8, 2022 at 10:30 a.m. Over the past year we have been working on a mural project with local artist Paes 164. The mural is located on the south side of the parking lot and is the largest mural in Colorado Springs history. Just over 50 gallons of paint and 350 cans of spray paint were used to coat the wall, which is 50 feet high and over 350 feet long!

This is a great community partnership, and we’re excited to add new arts to the city. Paes 164 has been an award-winning mural and graffiti artist for over 30 years and a resident artist of Fallen Heroes Tattoo.

“For me, I respect CSPD and I was very happy to hear from you who wanted to do this project. You do all the hard work for the community, and I thought it was important that the community reconnect with you, even if it’s through art! Honestly, I wanted to change careers a few years ago and join, but my face tattoos were too sexy for the department! I’m really proud of be the one doing this mural and I appreciate you all!” said Paes 164, mural artist.

“We are incredibly honored to partner with Paes 164 and provide them with a canvas for this beautiful mural. We hope this art inspires current and future artists. We also hope that when you pass by, you will take a minute to reflect on this what COMMUNITY means to you and why Colorado Springs is a special place,” said Chief Adrian Vasquez of the Colorado Springs Police Department.

To the media and all members of our community, please attend the dedication of the largest mural in Colorado Springs. You will have the chance to see this magnificent mural, to hear and to meet

Paes 164, Chief Vasquez and the rest of the CSPD staff.
