The Northglenn Arts and Humanities Foundation (NAHF) announced today that Colorado artist Colette Pitcher is the recipient of the 2012/2013 People's Choice Award for her bronze sculpture, "Bee My Honey." The award is part of Northglenn's Art on Parade program. The program features on-loan, outdoor sculpture exhibited at E.B. Rains Jr. Memorial Park for one year. The public votes for their favorite, and NAHF works toward purchasing the piece for permanent display in the City of Northglenn. NAHF has already secured funding for the piece from the Scientific and Cultural Facilities District (SCFD).
"Bee My Honey" is bronze, 6' high, and will be purchased for $21,000. Pitcher says she translates her experiences and spirit into art that makes the viewer smile or pause to consider what often is taken for granted. "It is my goal to leave a person or place feeling or looking better after I left than before I came." For more information about Pitcher, visit www.colettepitcher.com.
The piece will remain on display in E.B. Rains Jr. Memorial Park through May 2013, at which time six new sculptures on loan will be installed. The permanent location for "Bee My Honey" will be announced in the summer of 2013. For more information about Art on Parade or NAHF, call Michael Stricker at 303-450-8727.
