The Lyons Arts and Humanities Commission (LAHC) and the Town of Lyons are thrilled to announce a call for artists for entries in our public art collection now known as the heARTS of LYONS – an outdoor arts collection — all over town. We wish to judiciously expand our current outdoor art collection through the careful selection of an additional five high quality pieces.
To be considered for this two-year commitment, artists are encouraged to do an online submission for up to three pieces for juried consideration with NO submission fee.
The window for submissions is now through February 22, 2022
The Town of Lyons and the LAHC have identified where placement of art is permissible and will assist with the installation of mounting blocks and placards for each piece adding to this outstanding opportunity for high visibility.
Artists are paid a $750 honorarium (paid in two installments) for a two-year placement. Artists are encouraged to sell their work showcased in this main high-traffic corridor to Rocky Mountain National Park; if the existing work sells, the expectation is that said piece is replaced by a comparable piece in a timely fashion for the duration of the two-year contract.
