Sculptures Leave E. B. Rains Jr. Memorial Park; New Art Unveiled Today, 6/20
The Northglenn Arts and Humanities Foundation (NAHF) has begun the process of removing the current six sculptures-on-loan at the award-winning E.B. Rains Jr. Memorial Park. The sculptures have been on display in the park since June of 2011. Six new sculptures chosen for the 2012/2013 season will be unveiled at a public ceremony at the park today, June 20 at 6:00 p.m. Artists will be on hand to answer questions about their pieces during a walking tour after the ceremony.
Northglenn's annual free summer concert series will open with delta blues artists “Felonius Smith Trio” immediately following the unveiling ceremony at 6:30 p.m. The new sculptures will remain in the park through May of 2013. The park is located at 11801 Community Center Drive; one-half mile south of 120th Avenue and Grant St. in Northglenn.
The new sculptures are part of Northglenn's 12th annual Art on Parade program, an on-loan outdoor sculpture exhibit funded by NAHF and the Adams County Scientific and Cultural Facilities District (SCFD). Artists loan their pieces for one year. Park patrons vote for their favorite each season. Dubbed "The People's Choice," the winning sculpture is purchased by NAHF and gifted to the City of Northglenn for permanent placement in the city. The sculptures are also available for sale to the public.
The Northglenn Arts and Humanities Foundation (NAHF) is a 501(c)3 organization that provides funding for quality youth theatre, public art, and other cultural endeavors in our community. NAHF was founded in 1990.
