The city of Loveland Visual Arts Commission has developed a shortlist of 10 artists it is considering to design and build an art installation for the side of the new downtown public parking garage. The list, announced to commission members Tuesday, includes artists with work displayed in such cities as Taiwan, New York, Shanghai and Paris.
The city issued a call for a dynamic and colorful mosaic or mural for the south and east walls of the six-level parking garage to soften its look after its original plans for a sculpture fell through due to the rising cost of metal. The Visual Arts Commission received 168 applications and has narrowed it down to a final 10, according to an email from Suzanne Janssen, public art manager for the city, obtained via the City Council public email archive.
In no particular order, the shortlisted artists are: Ray King, Adam Daily, Norman Lee, Priscila De Carvalho, Ryan Christenson, Dan Bergeron, Patrick Milbery, Jim Hirschfield, Bimmer Torres and Daas.
