Rotating Artwork Program at the EVCC

The Estes Valley Community Center is a destination for local residents and visitors to our community. To provide yet another way for the community to be a part of the facility, we have established a  public gallery area on the lower-level lobby of the Estes Valley Community Center.

The gallery will contain a collection of 12 to 20 pieces of wall art that will rotate quarterly with the first show running from late February to the end of June 2018.


The First Show
The first show will feature photographs that have a theme of local inspiration. EVRPD is seeking photographs that represent our beautiful community and region. This may include wildlife, wildflowers, landscapes, recreation, downtown scenes or architecture. This show will run from the opening in late February through the end of June 2018.

How to Enter Work for Consideration
To have your work considered, submit no more than two images per person by January 31 to with the subject line: EVCC Photos. Include in the email the name of the photographer, Estes Valley address (so we may verify residency), image title, subject of image and where the photo was taken.

Image files should be no larger than 4MB each and cannot contain watermarks or other identifying marks revealing the identity of the artist. There is no cost to submit entries for consideration but artists will be responsible for the cost of printing and framing.

Selection Process
Images will be juried by the staff of EVRPD and selected artists will be notified by February 7, 2018. Artists will need to deliver their professional-quality prints to the Estes Valley Community Center (660 Community Drive) between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. on Friday, February 23. Final artwork can be in any medium and can be up to 16 by 20 inches but must include wire and D-rings for hanging. Artwork must remain on display for the entirety of the show. You may not remove pieces early for any reason.
