Colorado Creative Industries; Community Canvas
 
Community Canvas is a special component of Pedal The Plains supported by Colorado Creative Industries (CCI) and is designed to share the story of landscapes, landmarks and life as it is now and how it used to be on the plains. Not only will this create a lasting legacy in each area, but the process will also establish a model for future public art endeavors and unite the communities in a celebration of their unique assets. This year’s three host communities: Kersey, Keenesburg, and Brush! all participated in this great program. Here is a summary of the artwork that will be installed with the help of a $1000 grant from CCI:

Kersey
Artist: Brandon Vannest
The artist's proposal is for a sculptural structure in the shape of hands with water pouring between them . The hands will be made out of steel rod to make a wire frame for the structure. The "water" that is being poured from one hand would be stainless. The idea behind the sculpture is water conservation, (protecting and preserving our water above and below ground.) The artist was raised on the 70 Ranch, where water has always been vital, and wanted the artwork to reflect this importance for the area and community. The sculpture is projected to be about 5-feet tall and have a foot print about 8'x8'.

Keenesburg
The project will be done by a local graphic designer, named Carolyn Fields who owns a local printing/media company. She created six 4' x 4' panels that was placed at the finish line lane in Keenesburg. Each panel has a plains background and each contain a picture of bicycles throughout history. The designs are on an aluminum type board. After the ride, the panels will be permanently placed in the Keenesburg Tree Park at the end of Main Street. This park contains the town’s Christmas tree and where they have a tree lighting event every year.

Brush!
The goal of the project is to have an exciting and creative mural that reflects the historical and agricultural heritage of Brush! on the north side of the what is now known as the Auction House, at 102 S Clayton St. The building sits along a major and historical street in Brush! across from the railroad line, and within the heart of the downtown area. The masses that will drive by the building each year on their way to the park, fairground, work, home, or wherever their travels may be, will get to enjoy an inspired display of the history of Brush! Colorado.
