Denver Arts & Venues Public Art Program: Westwood Park Public Art Project

Application Deadline: Monday, October 8, 2018 11:59 p.m. Mountain Time Zone

The Denver Arts & Venues Public Art Program, now in its 30th year, seeks to commission an artist or team of artists to create an original work of art for Westwood Park. The park is located at 4951 W. Kentucky Ave in Denver’s Westwood neighborhood. 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. All community engagement meetings and workshops will be held in the Westwood neighborhood.
