Public Art Improvements:

In 2017 the District began working with the City of Aurora (the “City”) to commission and install public art within the community. The City requires developers to provide public art within new communities. For Conservatory, the City collected and set aside $72,000 for this purpose pursuant to a development agreement with Lennar.  A Public Art Selection Committee comprised of District representatives, a homeowner within the District, and City representatives reviewed 61 entries from local and regional artists in response to its Call for Entries published in April 2017. The committee narrowed its selections to four finalists.  Presentations to the District's Board of Directors and the Community occurred at the September 18, 2017 Board Meeting. At that time the entry presented by Madeline Wiener, Sculpture Artist, was selected.  Ms. Wiener was commissioned to create two large interactive stone sculptures and two stone benches (resembling stacked books), which have now become an interactive seating area at the intersection of South Conservatory Parkway and South Jericho Way across from the Aurora Frontier P-8 School. The dedication ceremony marking the completion of the project was held on May 20, 2019 at 12:30 p.m.  Thank you to all the residents who were able to attend.
