April 22 ~ Lantern Making Workshop #4: Animal Open House

[no registration required]
Join the Public Art Committee the day of the parade for the final lantern making workshop, Animal Open House.  Participants will make animal faces of their choice. This is less of a teacher guided workshop and more of a “Do it yourself” lantern making project. No registration required.

Volunteers will be available to help participants when needed. This is an open house event and participants can come as early as 4:30 p.m. Allow for at least an hour of time to make the lantern. The workshop ends at 6:30 p.m. Line up for the parade at the Broomfield Amphitheater begins at 7:30 p.m.

The vision of the Broomfield Public Art Program is to enhance the image of Broomfield and foster a “sense of place” for its residents and visitors.

The mission is to create a more visually pleasing environment and to expand the opportunities for residents and visitors to experience quality works of art.

In 2001 the City and County of Broomfield adopted a comprehensive master plan, Creative Broomfield. The Public Art Committee (PAC) created a Public Art Master Plan and Guidelines to facilitate acquisition of public art for the City and County of Broomfield.
