The Palisade Art Vision Committee (PAV) is seeking application submissions for the 2018/2019 Public Art Program.
PAV was formed in 2015 by a group of local citizens and artists to promote and embrace “Art as a part of everyday life.” PAV envisioned an outdoor sculpture program to promote a visible aesthetic voice of the town of Palisade, “The Peach and Wine Capital of Colorado.”
Our first installation in 2016 featured renowned regional sculptors, Dave Davis, Gary Hauschulz, Lyle Nichols and Steve Kentz. Our first sculpture was purchased in 2016, “Spring Herons” by Steve Kentz, with 75% of the proceeds being returned to the artist and remains in the PAV permanent collection. This year’s artists consist of both masters and exciting new talent, Dimitri Domani Spiridon, Amos Biocic, Pavia Justinian, Greg Todd, Nathan Hale and Daphna Russell. They hail from Colorado and the West.
PAV will be filling 5 spots in 2018 and is offering a $500 stipend to artists for the loan of their pieces for one year. PAV promotes, publicizes and provides a public place for visitors to enjoy your work! Applications will be accepted through July 6, 2018. Installation is Saturday, September 8, 2018.
Palisade is a quaint Victorian town amidst a dramatic landscape. A sun-splashed valley, it is surrounded by orchards and vineyards supported by a canal system with water flowing from the Grand Mesa and the mighty Colorado River. Palisade offers a variety of recreational opportunities taking advantage of the proximity to the Colorado River, public lands and the Rocky Mountains. Agricultural tourism, fruit and wine production, festivals and events, outdoor opportunities and a local creative community attract diverse visitors to the region.
