  • Brief Description

    The city of Thornton in collaboration with the Thornton Arts, Sciences and Humanities Council (TASHCO), are seeking to commission public art in the form of four pollinator habitats, structures or spaces that provide shelter for a specific pollinator species.

    These habitats will be installed in pollinator gardens located in each city ward. The selected artist will research, design, build and install species-specific habitats. The city of Thornton's Parks and Open Space Divisions will work with the selected artist to identify native species of plants that support the design of each pollinator habitat. Staff will select, plants and maintain the space in the pollinator garden surrounding each habitat.

    This work is intended to be a permanent addition to the Thornton public art collection and parks environments. The city of Thornton reserves the right to remove any artworks for any reason, at any time.
