Art for Awhile Sculpture Program


Art for Awhile

Art for Awhile

is an exciting art on loan program created by the Broomfield Public Art Committee (PAC) and sponsored by the City and County of Broomfield. Participating artists are chosen by the PAC to display their art and offer it for sale for one year. The program affords the artist increased public exposure and the opportunity to sell their work.

Art is displayed in three locations: 1STBANK Center, North Metro Fire District Headquarters, and the Broomfield Library. Click here for a map.

Happy Dance

I was interested in a theme of two people in a great friendship. As I thought about how life affirming an honest, lasting, and deep friendship is, what it means, and what it takes to create and sustain such a friendship, the form of the two friends walking through life together, arm in arm, in step, and with total affinity for each other took shape. These types of friendships contain many positive elements such as closeness, good will, affection, harmony, love, affinity, coalition, community, and alliance, among others.

So I made Happy Dance. It is a heartfelt thank you to all who have joined me in my Happy Dances. It is a celebration of all of life's Happy Dances. ~Richard Pankratz

Storming West is about prompting greater awareness of our natural resources and asking if we shouldn't be finding ways to get along and share them.~Justin Deister

High Five

We live in the foothills and share our property with Black Bears. I love to show their whimsical, almost human antics. My intent was to provoke a smile and the desire to interact with a complimentary "High Five", which seems to happen often with this bronze! What the non-artist may not notice is my attention to anatomical accuracy.

Dropsy

The Dropsy was inspired by the idea of pressure building between two walls and forcing them to bend outward. The polished stainless orb is tilted adding to the movement of the piece.

Discobolos

Art for Awhile Program

Discobolos is a riff on the classical Greek discus thrower by Myron. It distills form and movement, or, more accurately, potential movement -- like its Greek predecessor, the sculpture captures the moment when the athlete has put as much energy as possible into his twisted pose, just before releasing that energy into the throw.

Frontier: Catch

'Frontier: Catch' is the first in a series called 'Lines in Space: Frontier'. These works play with concepts of Eastern thought within Western archetypes. Here, the Open Space is in the cowboy, as well as the other way around.

I enjoy the play between inside/outside, front/back, form/content, texture/color, process/materiality.
