Call for entries: Aurora, CO, Art in Public Places program

The city of Aurora Art in Public Places Program is searching for existing sculptures to be considered for a one-year exhibition called “ART 2C on Havana.”

The exhibition is a sculpture-on-the-street project modeled after others around the country that unites the business community and the arts to attract visitors, energize streetscapes and create great public gathering spaces.

A generous donation from the Havana Business Improvement District will fund the $750 artist stipends to transport and install artwork along Havana Street, and will fund cash awards amounting to $1,000 for People’s Choice, $750 for first place, $500 for second place and $250 for third place.

In addition, the Aurora Art in Public Places Program will purchase a sculpture from the exhibit, which will be added to the city’s public art collection and remain permanently displayed in the district.

Interested artists should visit CaFÉ at to apply; the deadline is midnight July 6.
