Public art has the potential to transform our lives and our community for generations to come.  Public art in Highlands Ranch ignites conversation, sparks new ideas, enhances our public places, enriches our quality of life, and shapes our community into a great place in which to live, work, and play.

The Highlands Ranch Cultural Affairs Association is proud to be a part of Art Encounters, a year-long outdoor sculpture exhibit that showcases a number of sculptures in various media and styles and is displayed in highly visible areas in Highlands Ranch, Lone Tree, Parker, and Castle Rock.  This Douglas County project is designed to promote public interests in art, develop community pride, and draw visitors to the retail or civic areas where they are displayed.

The sculptures will be on display from June 2013 through May 2014.  All sculptures are available for purchase.  Residents and visitors are encouraged to visit each area and then vote on their favorite piece.  Voting can be done on the Douglas County web site.  

Permanent Exhibit at the Recreation Center at Northridge
