LOOK UP!! Did you ever notice that in Aspen Grove there are banners on every lamppost along the walkways? Sometimes they are holiday designs, sometimes they are advertisements, but from May to October, some of them celebrate children’s art.

The Roxborough Arts Council and the ROX Art Gallery are beginning work on the 13th Annual Banner Project for Kids.  Every year we offer a free class for children ages 6 thru teens; some of our children have been taking part in this project for years and years! Students draw and color original designs based on a common theme; this year our theme will be Colorado Mountains. There is still time to register your young artist for this class by Feb. 21st, either in person at the Gallery or by phone (720 724 5730). Space will be limited, so register early. We will be following all the appropriate guidelines for COVID19.

After the designs are complete, we have a team of volunteers that complete the work. They are:

Tony Lazzeri – He photographs the designs

Jan Berger – She does the layout

Tom Cooper – He prints the design on vinyl

Mary Lou Steenrod – She chairs the project

Beth Lancaster – She sews the banners

Our young artists are always delighted to see their work flying high on the Aspen Grove lampposts…look for us this summer.

Our Winter hours are Mon-Tue – Closed, Wed-Sat – 10 AM – 7 PM, Sun – 11 AM – 6 PM.
