Brief Description

The city of Thornton, in collaboration with the Thornton Arts, Sciences and Humanities Council (TASHCO), is seeking to commission original public art. This project hopes for two outcomes that can both be accomplished by the commissioned artist, 1.) If possible, and depending on state of material, the removal and preservation of existing tiles that can be repurposed into indoor pieces. 2.) A reimagining of the wall with new and unique work that speaks to the location, has a positive visual impact and welcomes visitors to the facility space. The final work should push Thornton into a contemporary setting; becoming a destination-city engaged in conversations on art and culture. Artists are strongly encouraged to explore contemporary materials, themes, and utilize interdisciplinary practices to meet the scope of the project.
