South Suburban announces call for artists for Art-on-Loan Program

Jan 10 2020

South Suburban Parks and Recreation (SSPR) and the South Suburban Public Art Committee (SSPAC) invite members of the community to apply for the Art-on-Loan call for artists. The deadline to apply is February 11, 2020.

The SSPAC recommends three sculptures for SSPR Board approval to be displayed at the Goodson Recreation Center’s courtyard and entryway, and an additional two sculptures are selected for display at The Hudson Gardens & Event Center. 

The Art-on-Loan Program allows for artist-owned sculptures to be displayed at Goodson Recreation Center and Hudson Gardens for a period of one year. The sculptures are selected by the SSPAC and Hudson Gardens through a competitive process.

Interested in applying? Artists must reside in Colorado and their sculpture(s) must meet the site requirements and remain on display for one year. All sculptures must be for sale. Each artist receives a $500 honorarium for their display. SSPR receives a 20% commission on sculptures sold through the Art-on-Loan program. The application deadline is February 11, 2020. Apply here. For inquiries, contact: BusinessSupport@ssprd.org.

The Art-on-Loan Program is a year-long outdoor exhibit (June 2020 - June 2021) designed to promote public interest in art, develop community pride, and enhance the visitor experience at Goodson Recreation Center and The Hudson Gardens & Events Center.
