Public places throughout Castle Rock are shining brighter since new sculptures were installed in recent weeks in conjunction with the Countywide Art Encounters program.
Six sculptures are being featured through late May/early June 2019:
· “Thought of a Treble Clef,” for sale at $28,000 by artist John Banks, is near the Amphitheater at Philip S. Miller Park, 1375 W. Plum Creek Parkway
· “Courtship,” for sale at $5,800 by artist Eluisa Altman, is at Town Hall, 100 N. Wilcox St.

To borrow the pieces for the year, the Town has given each artist an $800 stipend, which is funded through the Philip S. Miller Trust Fund. No taxpayer money is used to purchase public art in Castle Rock.
Starting its 11th year, Art Encounters provides one-year exhibits of sculptures in retail and civic areas within Douglas County. Learn more about the program and vote for your favorite art piece before Labor Day at douglas.co.us/artencounters.
