Artists, grab your paintbrushes and your cameras and come help inspire public appreciation of open spaces through your art!
The Larimer County Department of Natural Resources Open Lands Program is seeking professional visual artist applicants for the 2009 Visual Artist Program. The selected “Artist of the Year” will have the opportunity to create a piece of visual art inspired by a Larimer County park or open space. The artwork will then be donated to the county.
The Larimer County Open Lands Program will host a public celebration of the final submitted artwork, will display the work for public viewing in a Larimer County building, and will publicize the artist whenever appropriately possible. The artist will host one public art-related program in order to increase public appreciation of open spaces through art. The artist will receive a complimentary Larimer County park entrance permit as needed to access fee areas, as well as access to open spaces not yet open to the public when appropriate and with prior approval. For an application and other information, please refer to the Web site at: www.larimer.org/naturalresources/openlands/artist.htm
Applications are due by Feb. 27, 2009. Please contact Justin Scharton at Larimer County Department of Natural Resources, (970) 679-4489 with any questions. To learn more about Larimer County’s parks and open spaces, visit the Web site at www.larimer.org/naturalresources.
