Brief Description

The Westwood Park art selection panel has recommended a site-specific, unique work of art to be designed, fabricated and installed for the park. A requirement of this project is engaging the community in the creative process through hands-on workshops for youth and residents. The goal of the artwork is to celebrate the community of Westwood and help instill a sense of pride and ownership in the park through the creation of a timeless and permanent art installation of high artistic merit and quality. Artist(s) should consider how the artwork will: enhance neighborhood culture; celebrate public space and promote unity and diversity. The specific locations for proposed artworks are to be determined once a short list of semifinalists are selected. This commission is open to artists or artist teams residing in the state of Colorado. The budget is approximately $55,000 USD, with a generous portion of the budget granted by The Trust for Public Land.
