In order to forge a lasting legacy from Artfest, renamed The Colorado Artfest at Castle Rock, The Castle Rock Chamber of Commerce created a Community Art Fund which financially supports and encourages large-scale outdoor public art for the enjoyment of residents and visitors of the town. All public art shown below is supported by the Castle Rock Chamber and proceeds from purchased art are donated to the Castle Rock Public Art Fund for the purpose of acquiring future public art pieces in Castle Rock. In addition, proceeds from the silent auction at the Colorado Artfest at Castle Rock.

The very first project undertaken by the Fund was the Life of Castle Rock tile mural by artist Malcom Farley which is displayed on the east side of the P.S. Miller Library facing Perry Street. The Castle Rock Chamber is committed to strengthening the cultural community in the region, below are more projects we have supported.

Thank you for your support of this worthy cause.  Make a Donation today.

 


The Castle Rock Chamber, the Castle Rock Public Art Commission and the Douglas County Library again partnered on a project entitled “Cool’n the Dogs.” This life-sized bronze sculpture of a cowboy and his horse, by artist Craig Bergsgaard, is located at the intersection of 5th & Gilbert Streets.
This master piece was designed and crafted by Mr. Bill Hueg of Peacock Studios in Westminster, CO.  The Eagle is 14′ tall and has a wingspan of 8′.  Freedoms Keeper sets atop a 5′ granite pedestal within Veterans Plaza. The entire monument encompasses a 40 x 40 square foot area on the same ground where the original Douglas County Courthouse once stood.
“JAX” by Janene Dirico-Cable is dedicated to all Police Service Dogs for the loyalty, fearlessness and sacrifice they give to their handler, fellow officers and the community.  “Jax” served the residents of Castle Rock from 2002-2008 with over 1,900 deployments for missing persons, illegal drugs and defending fellow officers now sits on watch near the Castle Rock Police station. “Jax” was favorite among Castle Rock school children, often visiting schools. After his passing in 2010, Castle Rock Police Department officers began fund raising to memorialize all service dogs.
Welcoming all who come to visit the Castle Rock Chamber of Commerce stands “Ryleigh” who enjoys the flowers in the Chamber front yard.  This piece is an original bronze artwork by artist Marianne Caroselli.
A new 9/11 Monument dedicated to the spirit of first responders is the result of intensive work by the Castle Rock Chamber’s 2017  Leadership Douglas County class members. The bulk of the memorial is comprised of a tall, rusted, contorted piece of steel pipe that is a portion of steel from the World Trade Center, which collapsed on September 11, 2001 now rests on a pedestal of locally-quarried rhyolite outside the Castle Rock Fire Department Local 4116 headquarters. The steel was acquired through the generosity of The Counterterrorism Education Learning Lab (The CELL). May we never forget the great evil which occurred—and the heroic actions of so many brave men and women.
