Artists of all ages — grab your paintbrushes, pencils and cameras and help inspire people's appreciation of nature through your artwork! The selected "Artist of the Year" will have the opportunity to create a piece of visual art inspired by one of Larimer County's parks or open spaces, which the artist will donate to the County. Larimer County Department of Natural Resources will host a public celebration of the final submitted artwork, display the work for public viewing in a Larimer County building and publicize the selected artist whenever appropriately possible. The artist will host one public art-related program in order to increase people's appreciation of nature through art.
