Downtown Parker has seven new sculptures to check out as part of the 2022/2023 Douglas County Art Encounters program.
Art Encounters is a year-long outdoor sculpture exhibit that showcases a number of sculptures, in various media and styles, in Parker, Castle Rock, Highlands Ranch, Lone Tree, and Roxborough. The project aims to promote public interest in art, develop community pride and draw visitors to the retail or civic areas where they are displayed.
