Redlands Roundabout Art Project
The Redlands Roundabout project is a public and private endeavor spearheaded by the City of Grand Junction and the Commission on Arts & Culture. The project includes adding a Desert Bighorn Sheep sculpture scene to the Roundabout at Redlands Parkway and Broadway.
The design and artist selection was based on a public community meeting in early 2020. The attendees supported the theme of Bighorn Sheep to celebrate their presence in the surrounding areas. The Commission facilitated an open call for artists based on the chosen theme, and Pavia Justinian, a local experienced artist was selected for the project.
Donations will go towards the completion of the third element, the ram in the center of the roundabout, which along with the already funded mother, baby ram, and the sparring rams will complete the entire proposed design.
To donate to the Redlands Roundabout Art Project, visit the dedicated donation page on Hilltop's website.
