Art Encounters is a year-long outdoor sculpture exhibit that showcases a number of sculptures in various media and styles, displayed in highly visible areas in Castle Rock, Highlands Ranch, Lone Tree and Parker. The project is designed to promote public interest in art, develop community pride and draw visitors to the retail or civic areas where they are displayed.
The Art Encounters idea was formed by the Douglas County Cultural District (DCCD). The DCCD created a Public Art Advisory Committee (PAAC) with representatives from Douglas County to implement the Art Encounters program and select the sculptures.
