Calling all sculptors – last chance to submit your artwork
Information provided by Douglas County Art Encounters
There is still time for area sculptors to submit artwork to be considered for the 2017 Douglas County Art Encounters (DCAE) outdoor public art program. All applications must be received online no later than February 11. Selected work will be on display from May 2017 through June 2018.
Last year, 27 sculptures were selected by the DCAE to be displayed in highly-visible areas in Castle Rock, Highlands Ranch, Lone Tree, Parker and Roxborough. The program is designed to promote public interest in art, develop community pride and draw visitors to the retail or civic areas where they are displayed. Selected sculptures are viewed by a great number of visitors annually and since the DCAE’s inception, 10 works of art have been purchased.
All chosen sculptors receive an $800 stipend and have the opportunity to be considered for the $1,000 people’s choice honorarium and the $1,000 judge’s prize.
All applications must be received online at www.callforentry.org by February 11. Be sure to click on the “How to Apply” tab. For submission requirements, visit www.douglas.co.us/artencounters/submission-requirements.
Art Encounters is partially funded by the Scientific and Cultural Facilities District, as well as the Philip S. Miller Trust for installations in Castle Rock.
