Douglas County Art Encounters is a year-long outdoor exhibit that showcases a number of sculptures in various media and styles, displayed in highly visible areas in Castle Rock, Highlands Ranch, Lone Tree, Parker and Roxborough. The project is designed to promote public interest in art, develop community pride and draw visitors to the retail or civic areas where the sculptures are displayed. All art is for sale.
A Public Art Advisory Committee with representatives from throughout Douglas County selects the artwork from applications submitted for this program. The committee functions under the direction of the Douglas County Cultural Council. The displayed work is identified with the artist's name, the title of the piece, the year and the Art Encounters logo.
