Larimer County accepting Visual Artist of the Year applications

Artists of all ages — grab your paint brushes, pencils, and cameras and help inspire public appreciation of open spaces through your art work.

The Larimer County Department of Natural Resources is seeking professional visual artist applicants for 2015. The selected “Artist of the Year” will have the opportunity to create a piece of visual art inspired by a Larimer County Park or Open Space which they will donate to the county. The Larimer County Natural Resources Department will host a public celebration of the final submitted artwork, display the work for public viewing in a Larimer County building and publicize the selected artist whenever appropriate.

The artist will host one public art-related program to increase the public’s appreciation of open spaces through art. For an application and other information, visit

Applications are due by 4:30 p.m. February 20.
