About Painting Positivity
We could all use a little positivity right now, and art has the power to heal and comfort. The Town’s Public Art Commission and the Castle Rock Artist Cooperative have teamed up to bring a slew of grassroots public art projects to Downtown. Painting Positivity Art installations can be explored throughout downtown Castle Rock beginning in June 2021.
Help us spread love, hope, and positivity!
Send us your photos of positivity by April 30. Photos from community members that best represent these themes will be used in public street art installations through the summer.
Kicking Off Painting Positivity
The first phase of the Painting Positivity campaign is a mural, which will be painted on the side of the Fort CPA Group office, located at 407 Wilcox St. in Downtown Castle Rock. The second phase is a call for photos from members of the community — amateurs and professionals alike — which will be assembled into large street art mosaics, symbols, and words of positivity that will be installed on several surfaces around Downtown.
About the Painting Positivity Art Movement
The campaign seeks to use art as a drop of positivity that creates a ripple effect in our community. Through art, we can provide a deeper, more meaningful human experience and provide a message of hope for the future.
The Public Art Commission functions as a catalyst for local public art experiences and works to enhance community vibrancy and small-town character. The mission of the Castle Rock Artist Cooperative is to bring the beauty and experience of art to the community.
