There’s art in every corner of Douglas County. Explore, appreciate and vote for your favorite in 2023!

Dozens of new sculptures on display as part of Art Encounters program

Posted on August 28, 2023 2023News and Events


Have you noticed artwork dotting the landscape as you’ve ventured out in Douglas County this summer? The celebrated Douglas County Art Encounters outdoor public art program has recently installed more than 30 pieces in public places throughout Castle Rock, Highlands Ranch, Lone Tree, Parker and Roxborough.

The 2023-2024 sculptures are the works of local and national artists, showcased in visible areas to encourage public interest in art, give artists an opportunity to showcase their work and give everyone a sense of community pride.

Whether you’re a public art enthusiast or new to public art, you are encouraged to visit each sculpture and then visit our webpage to select your favorite for a People’s Choice Award or help your kids select their favorite for a Kid’s Choice Award. The deadline for all voting is Jan. 31, 2024.

Conceived by the Douglas County Cultural Council in 2007, Art Encounters is a year-long outdoor art exhibit showcasing sculptures, in various media and styles. Since its inception, the project has been funded, in part, by the Scientific and Cultural Facilities District and the Philip S. Miller Trust.
