Art in Highlands Ranch
Art is very much a part of daily life in Highlands Ranch, with a variety of art forms on public display. This program focused on outdoor and public art, with an overview of artistic examples and people.
Travel along with Sara Walla and Jamie Noebel from HRCAA and Nancy Linsenbigler as we explore public art in parks, buildings, shopping centers, and more. Prepare to be amazed at the volume and variety of art out in the open! This will be a colorful and fun journey!
