Summary: Northglenn Arts and Humanities Foundation (NAHF) is conducting an open entry competition to select six sculptures ─ valued at no more than $25,000 each ─ to be part of Northglenn’s “Art on Parade” on-loan sculpture program. The selected pieces will be installed for a period of one year at E.B. Rains Jr. Memorial Park surrounding Webster Lake in Northglenn, Colorado.
Budget: Each of the six finalists will receive a $750 honorarium to help offset their expenses. In addition, $1,000 will be awarded to the artist who is the recipient of the annual “People’s Choice Award.” Since the program’s inception in 2001, the NAHF has purchased each of the People’s Choice winning sculptures. Although the purchase of the People’s Choice winner is not guaranteed, it is the goal of the Foundation to purchase permanent art for the City of Northglenn through the program.
