Artists of all ages — grab your paint brushes, pencils, and cameras and help inspire public appreciation of open spaces through your art work! 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 which they will donate to the County. The Larimer County Natural Resources Department 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 selected artist whenever appropriately possible. The artist will host one public art-related program in order to increase the public's appreciation of open spaces through art.
Painter Alison Dickson is busy traipsing across Larimer County open spaces in 2015 to create her unique piece of art. Check back at the end of the year to see what she created!
