Art for Awhile Sculpture Program

Art for Awhile
Art for Awhile
is an exciting art on loan program created by the Broomfield Public Art Committee (PAC) and sponsored by the City and County of Broomfield. Participating artists are chosen by the PAC to display their art and offer it for sale for one year. The program affords the artist increased public exposure and the opportunity to sell their work.

Art is displayed in three locations: 1STBANK Center, North Metro Fire District Headquarters, and the Mamie Doud Eisenhower Public Library. Click here for a map.

Three sculptures are installed on the promenade leading to the main entrance of the 1STBANK Center

Art for Awhile Program

"Plenum Orb is created from familiar stainless steel items re-assembled in a most unusual way. In the reflective sphere you can see mixing bowls, pitchers, tea pots, hub caps, pots and pans, water bottles, dog bowls and coffee urns. In total, the Orb contains over 150 pounds of recycled material that has been re-purposed into a completely new form.

Like the forces that hold electrons in orbit within an atom, the artist created the effect of a cosmic magnet pulling the objects together to form a perfect sphere."
Donald Gialanella

 Songbird Songbird

Art for Awhile Program

"Songbird is a full scale model of a 1/4 size double bass. A Red Winged Black Bird is perched at the top of the scroll, hence the title . It is strung with steel cable and the passerby can even attempt to play a tune on it. Although it may not be in tune.
This sculpture is intended to be interacted with." Joe Burleigh

Art for Awhile Program

"I use copper to form the main body of the sculpture. It is known for its balancing alchemy. The copper is hand drilled with abstracted imagery from Rock Art drawings. This imagery was created before any written language was established. It is our
spiritual connection to an ancient culture.Visually, I invite the viewer into their own investigations and discoveries of indigenous sign and symbol. It is the direction of my sculptures to keep these mysteries alive. I want my sculptures to serve as a primal connection when man was a part of nature, not apart from nature." Gary Monaco

Art for Awhile Program

“The Borborygmids are named so in reference to the scientific term for the rumblings of our guts, borborygmus, itself a Greek onomatopoeia. This piece marks a new direction for me as I look for striking ambiguities between the body and architecture.”
William Vannerson

Art for Awhile Program

“My work explores how artifacts can help people connect with universal human experience and explore its personal meaning. The fusion of cultural icons illuminates the connection we all share, including our joys and struggles with ubiquitous events like
birth, death and human relationships.” Sue Quinlan

“The top of the sculpture are a series of willow reeds with a gentle curve symbolizing a reed blowing in the breeze. The stainless steel is a collection of flat curved pieces that shine bright in the sun, they bring attention to the glass satellite in purple and a touch of green.” Rolin Karg

Permanent Collection, 2015

“I work primarily with found and scrap steel; transforming industry waste into opportunities to engage with our surroundings. Music Inside was created for the community to go beyond aesthetic appreciation into a deeper experience with the art where they are invited to touch, play and listen.” Maureen Hearty
