THE TOUR:
The ever-popular Art on the Streets has been on HPA’s summer tours almost every year; its program is a year-long exhibit of outdoor sculpture, displayed throughout downtown Colorado Springs. 
 
This has evolved into one of the most successful art shows in the region, celebrating the power of art in public places.
The goals of this program include: providing a city-wide identity, enhancing the prestige and beauty of the downtown, enlivening the visual environment, providing a means for cultural expression, fostering dialogue and contributing to the quality of life. We will view an array of sculptures including  winners for 2017.
 
NOTE: There is extensive walking on this tour. Restrooms may be difficult to locate along the tour.

HANDICAPPED ACCESSIBLE: Yes

RESTROOM FACILITIES: Yes

COST: Free to HPA Members
