CO's Northlgenn Arts and Humanities Foundation Calls for ART ON PARADE Sculpture Entries; Deadline 3/1

The 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 2013/2014 "Art on Parade" on-loan sculpture program. The winning pieces will be placed at E.B. Rains Junior Memorial Park surrounding Webster Lake in Northglenn, Colorado.

Each of the six finalists will receive a $600 honorarium to help offset expenses to the artists. In addition, $1,000 will be awarded to the artist who is the recipient of the annual "People's Choice Award."

Artists will receive substantial recognition and opportunity to sell; therefore, all pieces must be for sale. The placement of selected pieces will begin June 2013 and will be on display until May 2014.

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.
