NAHF opens call for entries

Posted

The Northglenn Arts and Humanities Foundation (NAHF) is conducting an open entry competition to select six sculptures — valued at no more than $25,000 each — to be part of Northglenn’s 2014/2015 “Art on Parade” on-loan sculpture program. The winning pieces will be placed at E.B. Rains Junior Memorial Park.

Each of the six finalists will receive a $600 honorarium to help offset expenses to the artists. In addition, $1,000 will be awarded to the artist who is the recipient of the annual “People’s Choice Award.” Artists will receive substantial recognition and opportunity to sell; therefore, all pieces must be for sale. The placement of selected pieces will begin June 2014 and will be on display until May 2015.

Since the program’s inception in 2001, the NAHF has purchased each of the People’s Choice winning sculptures. Although the purchase of the People’s Choice winner is not guaranteed, it is the goal of the foundation to purchase permanent art for the City of Northglenn through the program.

All submissions must be submitted via the CaFÉ website: www.callforentry.org.  Complete application instructions may be obtained through the CaFÉ website. For information, contact Michael Stricker at (303) 450-8727 or by email at artonparade@northglenn.org. Deadline for submission is Feb. 28.

City seeks volunteers to shovel snow for elderly, disabled

The city is seeking volunteers to shovel snow for seniors or residents with physical disabilities. Many of these residents need their sidewalks cleared because medical supplies are delivered to their residences or so they can safely leave their homes.

Volunteers can shovel before or after work.

Need is great, as residents are currently on the waiting list.

For more information, please contact Jenni Murphy at 303-450-8904 or jmurphy@northglenn.org.
