The Lyons Arts and Humanities Commission (LAHC) and the Town of Lyons are thrilled to announce a call for artists to submit entries in a public art collection now known as the "heARTS of LYONS - an outdoor arts collection all over town." We wish to judiciously expand this current outdoor collection of art and sculpture through the careful selection of an an additional twenty-four pieces.
To be considered for this two-year commitment, artists may submit online up to three pieces for juried consideration for a one time $30 submission fee. Submission
forms can be found at: http://www.townoflyons.com/formcenter/arts-and-humanities-commission-18/call-for-submissions-hearts-of-lyons-out-82. The window for submissions is now through May 15, 2018.
The Town of Lyons and the LAHC have devised a map identifying where placement of art is permissible and will assist with the installation of mounting blocks and placards for each piece adding to this outstanding opportunity for high visibility.
The most exciting news is the $750 honorarium (paid in two installments) for a two-year placement. Artists may choose to sell their work showcased in this main high-traffic corridor to Rocky Mountain National Park, if the existing work is replaced by another piece in a timely fashion for the duration of the two-year contract.
