2020 Pikes Peak Litter Letter Project-Dedication Event
Join us for the public dedication of the 2020 Litter Letter Project public art installation, entitled “RESILIENT”.
In celebration of Arts Month 2020, the Pikes Peak Outdoor Recreation Alliance, Fountain Creek Watershed Flood Control & Greenway District, Creek Week, and the Cultural Office of the Pikes Peak Region have joined forces once again to orchestrate the 3rd annual Pikes Peak Litter Letter Project. Each year, our local Litter Letter Project produces a unique piece of sculptural art that is constructed with trash collected from public lands and waterways during Creek Week. On Friday, October 2nd at 4:30PM, just before the start of First Friday, there will be a public dedication for the 2020 art piece, entitled “RESILIENT”. Community members and the local media are invited to attend. Please DOWNLOAD THE AREA MAP for parking directions. The event will feature remarks by:
- Tom Strand, Councilman, City of Colorado Springs
- Becky Leinweber, Executive Director, Pikes Peak Outdoor Recreation Alliance
- Bill Banks, Executive Director, Fountain Creek Watershed Flood Control and Greenway District
- Angela Seals, Deputy Director, Cultural Office of the Pikes Peak Region
Following the brief dedication event, everyone is invited to celebrate the start of Arts Month 2020 by participating in the October First Friday event from 5-8PM in Downtown Colorado Springs, Old Colorado City, and Manitou Springs. The local community is also invited to support our Litter Letter Project though a special social media campaign on Instagram, by using the hashtag #PikesPeakLitterLetters to show us how you are staying RESILIENT during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Media inquiries and questions about the project should be directed to Andy Vick at andy@CulturalOffice.org.
Free and open to the community
