The Lafayette, Colorado Public Art Committee invites submissions for the 2016 Art on the  Street (AOTS) outdoor sculpture walk.  This art on loan program displays 16 - 18 rotating sculptures each year in our Creative~Diverse~Eclectic Old Town which has become known in the area as a great arts desitination.  We actively promote the AOTS program to engage our community and to encourage sales of the artworks on display. 
nSelected artists receive a $500 stipend and the potential to win one of two prizes: The $1000 Jean Mellblom Award and a $250 People's Choice Award.  The AOTS sculptures are marketed in print, online and at special functions and at least one sculpture has been purchased each year of the AOTS program.   We interview the sculptors and post the edited videos online. We print our brochures in English and in Spanish. Additionally, we introduce participating artists to the community at our Art on the Street: See & Respond! event.  We invite artists and poets to study the sculptures and to respond with 2-D art, photography and poetry.  Their entries are on display at our meet the artists event which will be held in the fall of 2016.
