Horse Power: The Art of the Horse at the Curtis Center

Entry Deadline: Saturday, November 17, 2018


The only criteria is that each piece should capture the elements, essence and beauty of the horse. The horse culture plays an important role in the Greenwood Village community. While it is home to the Denver Technology Center and its many contemporary, high-rise buildings, Greenwood Village is dotted with horse ranches, barns and stables. To honor this culture, the Curtis Center for the Arts is hosting “Horse Power,” an exhibit celebrating the art of the horse. The purpose of the show is to express the beauty of these magnificent creatures in many different styles and mediums. Approximately 50 - 60 pieces will be accepted for the exhibit. Only original equine fine art produced by the entering individual will be accepted.
