Vail Seeks Artists for Public Art Installation

The Town of Vail’s Environmental Sustainability Team invites artists to submit their qualifications and images of previous artwork such as painting, pastel and drawing for consideration in the town-wide program to educate the public about storm drains and promote the health of Gore Creek. The selected artists will be commissioned to create an original and specific work depicting one of six Colorado wildlife species that live in or near Gore Creek, such as cutthroat trout, bald eagle, moose, American dipper, boreal toad, American beaver or other species.


The images will be digitally transferred to a slip resistant decal which will be adhered in proximity to selected storm drains throughout the Town of Vail. The selected artists will each receive a $500 stipend.


Interested artists must submit a one-page letter of interest indicating their vision and approach for the project plus visual support materials of previous work. Submissions are due March 20. Visit for the original call for artists.
