Glenwood Springs’ arts and culture board has made the first round of selections for a new public art project. The six semi-finalists will now be narrowed down to three.
There were 17 artists who submitted proposals for the project, which will be placed in a plaza area north of the new pedestrian bridge over the Colorado River.
Arts and culture board member Jonathan Gorst said all six semi-finalists compliment the location.
“We were looking at examples that captured that spirit of the outdoors and the confluence of nature,” said Gorst.
A committee formed of members from the Downtown Development Authority, Planning and Zoning, Historic Preservation and the Arts Board will now review the projects and select three finalists by Sept. 25.
