    Longmont Art in Public Places (AIPP) in collaboration with Longmont Sister Cities Association (LSCA) seeks a Colorado artist or artist teams who are proficient in the creation of a site-specific sculpture to serve as a gathering place to celebrate the 25 years of Sister Cities partnership between Ciudad Guzmán, Mexico and Longmont, Colorado. Highlighting the vital role the annual student exchange plays in the partnership, the gathering place piece will serve as the location for LSCA events. Additionally it will be a space for the community, overlooking McIntosh Lake and the majestic twin peaks, Longs Peak and Mt. Meeker. The artist must ensure that the artwork serves as a seamless addition to the space and use materials able to withstand harsh Colorado weather elements including ultraviolet rays. The area where the gathering location is approximately 625 square feet.
