South Suburban Public Art Committee

The South Suburban Public Art Committee (PAC) is an appointed volunteer body that offers an informed opinion to the elected South Suburban Park and Recreation District (SSPRD) Board of Directors regarding art in public places.  The PAC consists of 7 - 9 at-large members plus one representative from a city art commission from within the boundaries of SSPRD.  Currently, only the City of Littleton’s Fine Arts Board and the City of Lone Tree’s Art Commission are represented on the PAC.  At-large members are selected through an application process.  The SSPRD Board of Directors must act on the appointment all PAC members.

Interactive Art Map
The District has had a robust public art program that has been in existence for more than three decades.   Currently, South Suburban Parks and Recreation is responsible for over 60 permanent public art displays.  The Interactive Art map features SSPR owned art, as well as select art from our local government partners.

Temporary Art Exhibition
The PAC also makes recommendations regarding temporary art exhibits at the District’s recreation centers.  Artists interested in displaying their work in one of our facilities must apply through the Temporary Art Exhibit Form.  For additional details, please contact the Arts and Enrichment Manager, Darcie LaScala, darciel@ssprd.org.

Annual Art on Loan Program
Annually, the PAC selects sculptures from Colorado artists for display at Goodson Recreation Center and the Hudson Gardens and Event Center.  The selected pieces are on loan from the artists for one year and are for sale to the public.  Purchasers may take possession after the one-year exhibition period.  Selected artists receive an honorarium and must sign an agreement with SSPRD and provide their current W9.

Colorado artists are invited to submit their application for the South Suburban Art on Loan program.  Deadline to submit is February 11, 2020.   Final selection generally occurs in March.   Installation generally occurs in June.  Artists may only apply for the program through Café.  For more information, please contact Deputy Executive Director Mike Braaten at mbraaten@ssprd.org.
