ABOUT THE 2017-18 EXHIBIT
The works in the 19th annual Art on the Streets exhibit were drawn from a total of 79 proposals from 53 artists worldwide, including 35 Colorado-based artists. Jurors Joy Armstrong (CS Fine Arts Center at Colorado College) and Tim Vacca (Museum of Outdoor Art, Denver) used artistic merit as the primary criterion for selection, though placemaking and social impact were also considered. Artists and photos of their works are listed below.
The exhibit will be on display through May 2018 throughout the Downtown Creative District.
The $10,000 Juror Award was awarded to Timothy Flood for Affirmation Station and a $1,000 Honorable Mention was awarded to Byeong Doo Moon for I have been dreaming to be a tree.
All of the artworks included in the Art on the Streets exhibit are for sale, and purchase inquiries are welcome; contact us at 719-886-0088.
