The Town of Windsor’s Culture Division would like to know what types of art and locations are most desired by the community. The survey will be available through June and is the first step in creating the Public Art Master Plan. Results from the survey will help lay the groundwork for selecting public artworks and for creating a commission to oversee selection and implementation of these works.
To take the survey, visit http://bit.ly/WindsorArt.
The town currently has two pieces of public art. The first being a bronze statue at Chimney Park of a Garret Valenzuela playing baseball, donated by his family after he died due to an allergic reaction at the park. The second, donated by the Windsor Historical Society, features larger-than-life bronze statues of an immigrant family of sugar beet farmers. The statue group, created by local artist Austin Weishel, currently features a father, son, and daughter. The town will be unveiling the final addition to the group, the mother, on June 27.
The town has partnered with students and staff from CU Denver's Colorado Center for Community Development and the Department of Local Affairs to lead the public input process.
