Public Art

ArtScape is an art on loan program and the sculptures are selected through a community jury process and then placed throughout downtown to create a unique self-tour sculpture walk. The program was created in 2017 to help beautify and revitalize the downtown. The goal of the program is to promote and exhibit artwork while also enhancing the community atmosphere and creating a unique sense of place. ArtScape is funded by an allotted budget that City Council approves, by sponsorships, and donations. There is an Art Committee group that consists of community volunteers and staff this group helps with the logistics and goals of the program.  All of the artwork on loan is for sale and the City receives a 20% commission, which is reinvested into the program. For more information on this program, to purchase art, to be a sponsor, or to make a donation please contact Kelley Baily at 719-587-2024 or kbaily@ci.alamosa.co.us. All monetary support of $100 or more qualifies for a 25% Colorado Tax Credit as well as a Federal Tax benefit through the Enterprise Zone.

This is a one of a kind unique piece with contemporary lines in a representational style. The steel is cut and welded with bronze. The finish is a rich layering of enamel. The sculpture depicts a hawk catching a snake. It is a visually dynamic work.

As an artist and sculptor my goal is to bring a smile to the face of all who view my artwork. My sculpture is designed to be touched and move you. It is meant to engage a lively conversation for everyone. I enjoy being an artist and using my hands to shape clay into art. The everyday simple things that surround us are my inspiration. My vision in creating art is to express a view of life that is joyful, playful, and fun. As a sculptor, the “artist” experience in the public art world has been very rewarding. Originally sculpted in clay, the finished work of art is cast in bronze.

Going back to childhood, many people may recall the excitement of finding a feather on the ground. It was a magical moment and it seemed that the feather was a gift from above. People may not realize but various cultures around the world also believed that feathers had a connection to the heavens. Some believed that they carried messages from the gods. Stumbling upon a feather is believed to be a good omen, a sign that you are on the right path. It is a message to soar above where you are spiritually and to look at the world from a higher perspective. This mosaic feather was created with that in-mind, to be a good omen for the passerby's. It aims to be an uplifting landmark and to delight visitors and residents a like, to provide a sensory experience of whimsical patterns, a warm welcoming color palette and a spiritual connection to its location.
