Located on Hwy 89 in Jackson, the ArtSpot is seen by an average of 30,000 people per day. The ArtSpot is a kinetic sign structure that was designed and built by the Center of Wonder's Public Art Ambassador Bland Hoke. It was created from a repurposed chairlift tower donated by the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. Artists are supported with a $2000 stipend, huge exposure and an introduction to creating work for a public setting. Selected works inspire a sense of community by depicting shared themes, values and experiences. Artwork that is cynical, political or negative will not be considered. Installations change on the solstices and/or the equinoxes.
