Like spring has changed to summer, the Town’s Public Art Commission has changed the sculptures being displayed in Castle Rock as part of the Countywide Art Encounters program.
Starting its ninth year, Art Encounters provides one-year exhibits of sculptures in retail and civic areas within Douglas County.
The five sculptures installed in Castle Rock in recent weeks will remain in place until late May/early June 2017:
• “Running Girl,” for sale at $12,445 by artist Harold Linke, is at the Miller Activity Complex, 1375 W. Plum Creek Parkway
• “Lyric,” for sale at $3,800 by artist John Wilbar, is at Town Hall, 100 N. Wilcox St.
• “Quest,” for sale at $7,200 by artist Andrew Arvanetes, is at Butterfield Crossing Park, 3952 W. Butterfield Crossing Drive
• “And the Wheels Go Round (II),” for sale at $22,000 by artist Terrence Karpowicz, is at Red Hawk Ridge Golf Course, 2156 Red Hawk Ridge Drive
• “Stranger Reduction Zone,” for sale at $6,000 by artist Timothy Flood, is at the Castle Rock Recreation Center, 2301 Woodlands Blvd.
Pictures of all of the pieces are online at CRgov.com/artencounters.
To borrow his or her piece for the year, the Town has given each artist an $800 stipend, which is funded through the Philip S. Miller Trust Fund. No taxpayer money is used to fund public art in Castle Rock.
