The Town's newest public art sculpture was installed this spring. Drawing on inspiration from native flowers, Still Wild adds new vibrancy to Downtown Castle Rock.
Through the generous support of Confluence Companies, developer of Encore, the Town received a $50k donation for the purpose of adding art to the shared plaza area just south of Town Hall.
The Public Art Commission assembled a selection committee to issue a call for entries from artists. After reviewing over 70 submissions, the committee interviewed three finalists and selected artist Amie Jacobson, who grew up just south in Colorado Springs, for her wildflower proposal Still Wild.
Sitting 15-feet tall, these steel-painted flowers celebrate and honor all that is native and natural to the land that hosts the thriving community of Castle Rock. The sculpture also features internal LED lights that cast a beautiful nighttime glow.
This piece is a permanent addition to the Town's collection of public art managed by the Public Art Commission, who identifies goals for the acquisition and maintenance of art for public buildings and parks in Castle Rock.
