College of Arts & Media Instructor Michael Brohman has won the first place award at the Arts on the Streets event in Colorado Springs now on display in downtown Colorado Springs.
Brohman’s bronze “Places” was described by juror, Blake Milteer, “This is American classicism. Brohman places the American Western icons of cattle and windmill atop columns, which are standards of Greco-Roman classicism. The tops of the capitals on these columns echo the flatness of the plains, while the space around them draws our attention to the expanse of the Western American landscape in which we live.”
The award comes with a $15,000 cash prize.
Art on the Streets is a year-long, annual tradition, putting public art downtown — free to all.
