Artists of all ages — grab your paint brushes, pencils, and cameras and help inspire public appreciation of open spaces through your art work! The selected "Artist of the Year" will have the opportunity to create a piece of visual art inspired by a Larimer County park or open space which they will donate to the County. The Larimer County Natural Resources Department will host a public celebration of the final submitted artwork, will display the work for public viewing in a Larimer County building, and will publicize the selected artist whenever appropriately possible. The artist will host one public art-related program in order to increase the public's appreciation of open spaces through art.
The Larimer County Visual Artist for 2013 is fiber artist, Linda Beach. Linda has created a work of art inspired by Eagle's Nest Open Space that will be unveiled on February 14, 2014 at 3:00 p.m. at the Larimer County Courthouse Offices 2nd floor lobby, 200 W. Oak Street Fort Collins. Please join us to celebrate Linda and her work! You can view more about Linda Beach and her art work by visiting her personal website.
