News and Stories

Hello, Rotarians

I had an epiphany earlier this week. I think it's worth sharing because I can't be the only person to have this revelation. Or maybe someone else needs to hear this perspective.

Planet Walk Colorado Springs submitted space-themed, student artwork to the Commonwheel Artist Coop juried art show called Space “an exploration of out of this world art”.  The Commonwheel, located in Manitou Springs will display and sell this art as part of its current gallery event.  With the help of Academy Art & Frame who donated all of the beautiful, professional framing, Planet Walk worked with its partners, the Cultural Office of the Pikes Peak Region (COPPeR) and the Rotary Club of Colorado Springs to submit these amazing works of art.
These artistic works were originally part of the Space Art contest and free solar system tour.  The contest was held this past October as part of the annual Planet Walk event in America the Beautiful Park during Arts Month. 
The student artists ranged in age from 10 to 17 and represented schools from Fountain to Monument.  The student artists hail from: Howbert Elementary, Lewis Palmer Middle School, The da Vinci Academy, Taylor Elementary, Lewis Palmer High School, and Fountain Fort Carson High School in addition to one student who is home schooled.  
Planet Walk’s Artistic director, Elli Collette was impressed with the quality of the art submitted by the students.  “The amount of talent and dedication shown in these works gives me great optimism for the future of art and the creative process”
If you would like to view these youthful interpretations of space along with work by many other artists, simply visit the Commonwheel Artist Co-op at 101 Canon Avenue in Manitou Springs.
