2018 News/New Projects
287/Main Street Bridge Project
"Emerge" by Tom & Jean Latka was completed and installed in September, 2017. The sculptures on the three North-most pilasters of the Main Street/287 bridge are completed in full. What about the two South-most pilasters? Those were not available to us (AIPP) when the project was initiated, and were never meant to house artwork. There will be "end caps" that will be mounted on them soon, for all of you who may be wondering or who have asked.
The flood of 2013 hit Longmont hard. In many ways, we are still recovering from this natural disaster. The Art in Public Places Commission sought to honor the flood with artwork that would celebrate resiliency, as well as the way the community and beyond came together during this difficult time. Artist Joshua Wiener was chosen by a selection panel with his proposal of "Rejuvenation," which celebrates the power of the water and the strength of the people and the community. This project is scheduled to be installed in the Fall of 2018 and will be in the Dickens Farm Nature Area.
AIPP will be embarking on several mural projects in 2018. To be notified of upcoming opportunities, call to artists, please contact AIPP Administrator.
Call to Artists - mural projects; project budget up to $10,000 is available for the 9th & Alpine project and up to $7,500 is available for the 21st & Hover project. Deadline for submissions: April 8, 2018.
Art on the Move
The current Art on the Move installations will be returned to the owners/artists in mid June to make room for Art on the Move 2018-2019 installations. Dedication for works will be on July 14 this year!
The 2018 Call to Artists will go out in March with all 3-D submissions due in May. Exhibition and voting details will be announced in March.
Activate your Art – start biking/walking!
These walking and biking tours meander throughout the City at a conversational pace and feature various themes or geographical areas to focus on, each time mixing it up to ensure a different tour and different route. All tours are FREE, open to the public and are for all levels. Participants must wear a helmet on bike tours and bikes must be in good working condition. Children are welcome. Dates will be announced in March.
See something that doesn’t look quite right? Whether it’s broken, tagged, or a bolt may simply be out, please let us know as our small volunteer team can’t keep eyes on everything all of the time. Call 303-651-8924 or email to alert us. And THANK YOU!
