ABOUT THE 2018-19 EXHIBIT
The works in the 20th annual Art on the Streets exhibit were drawn from a total of 90 proposals from 72 artists worldwide. Twelve Colorado artists are represented in this year’s exhibit, with an additional five artists from elsewhere in the United States and one international artist, from South Korea. Jurors Joy Armstrong, curator of modern and contemporary art at the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center at Colorado College, and Rodney Wood, artist and founder of ArtoCade in Trinidad, Co., used artistic merit as the primary criterion for selection, as well as considering placemaking and social impact.
