Compensation (Budget, Stipend, etc):

The City of Thornton, in collaboration with the Thornton Arts, Sciences and Humanities Council (TASHCO), is seeking to commission original public art. This project will commission large scale, 3D, site-specific work that will have a strong visual impact.

This work will be installed at the Trail Winds Recreation Center located at 13495 Holly Street, 80602. The project will produce public art work that speaks to the location, has a positive visual impact and welcomes visitors to the facility. The final work should push Thornton into a contemporary setting; becoming a destination-city engaged in conversations on art and culture.

Artists are strongly encouraged to explore contemporary materials, themes, and utilize interdisciplinary practices to meet the scope of the project.

The working area is roughly 17-feet by 21-feet, with no height restrictions. The piece will be installed outdoors, on an island located in front of the facility. The area will be highly visible to vehicles and pedestrians walking to the facility and/or park. Applicants are highly encouraged to review the site materials to understand the space, potential impact of their work, and visual ques of the facility.

The site does include conduit for pieces utilizing dynamic lighting elements.
