Deadline for Durango Public Art Comment Period Draws Near

Commuters, travelers, and residents of Durango can give feedback about public art on the west side of town until this Friday, March 23rd. The city began an online pollat the end of January to decide between three ideas for art at the intersection of Highways 160 and 550. Those include sets of metal sculptures depicting the Animas River, wild animals, or silhouettes of pictures to be drawn by local students and artists. The art is planned to adorn the long medians along the highway. That’s a different location than the previous “Arc of History” sculpture. A link to the poll can be found on the KSJD website.

Austin Cope is a former Morning Edition host for KSJD and now produces work on a freelance basis for the station. He grew up in Cortez and hosted a show on KSJD when he was 10 years old. After graduating from Montezuma-Cortez High School in 2010, he lived in Belgium, Ohio, Spain, northern Wyoming, and Himachal Pradesh, India before returning to the Cortez area. He has a degree in Politics from Oberlin College in Ohio.
