Public Art in Westlands Park
If you have taken the trail around Westlands Park lately you may have noticed some artistic additions. Eight, new works of public art were installed throughout the park in September, two works by Collin Parson and six works by Charles Parson. This is the first time the father/son team have shown their outdoor works together.
The Greenwood Village Arts and Humanities Council partnered with the Museum of Outdoor Arts to create this outdoor gallery at Westlands Park. In addition to the outdoor gallery, these works correspond to an indoor exhibit featuring additional works by the two artists at MOA in Englewood. Charles and Collin Parson respond and react to each other's work, both in concept and format. Each artist creates objects that remind viewers of the extraordinary possibilities intrinsic in common, often industrial, materials, building on the structures of geometric forms underlying our world. This exhibit is an artistic bridge of the two generations, presenting an opportunity to harmonize and at times, contrast today's definitions of artistic expression.
The indoor exhibit runs through December 15th at MOA. The outdoor sculptures will continue to be on display in Westlands Park through August 2018.

The Public Art Program contributes to the civic pride of Greeenwood Village and involves residents in an active dialogue of the arts. We've organized this guide to be a self-guided tour of art at each specific site. Printed copies of the Public Art Guide are available at Greenwood Village City Hall and the Curtis Center for the Arts.
