Public Art eXperience

Public Art eXperience Logo
The Montrose Public Art eXperience (PAX) aims to create a more pleasing visual environment, expand opportunities to experience quality works of art, and facilitate the development, acquisition, and display of art in Montrose’s public spaces. The PAX brochure and sculpture location map serves as a guide to exploring sculptures that are on display in downtown Montrose.

The Montrose Public Art eXperience (PAX) is a partnership with the Montrose Downtown Development Authority, City of Montrose, PAX volunteer board members, local business sponsors and the public. PAX does not receive City funding for public artwork and relies on the generosity of patrons and volunteers. Your tax deductible gift will help us continue to bring the energy, passion and excitement of public art to our community.

People’s Choice Award 
Each year the public will have the opportunity to select the winner of the “People’s Choice Award.” A $500 cash prize and certificate awarded at the end of the exhibit year to the sculptor of the piece that receives the most votes.  “People’s Choice” voting forms can be mailed or dropped off at City Hall, 433 South First Street, OR mailed to:  Public Art eXperience, c/o Montrose DDA, P.O. Box 1165, Montrose, CO 81402.
