Bart Walters’ “Wapiti Circle,” in Westminster, Colorado


Caroline and I are visiting Bart Walters' "Wapiti Circle," in Westminster, Colorado. Thurs. August 24, 2017. It appears that municipalities in Colorado have a vibrant public art public policy. 

Westminster Colorado is huge, both in size and population. There are approximately 100,000 folks living here, just north of Denver, in what appears, at first impression, to be in reclaimed desert, within sight of the Rocky Mountains.

Of course, Mr. Walters is a local Westminster, Md. artist. Caroline and I visited the elks featured in this sculpture display at Reed St. and Walnut Creek, when they were being created in Westminster Md.

The sculptures are magnificent.

One of the new features, at the Carroll County Fair

One of the new features, at the Carroll County Fair that we really like, are the American flags that line the pedestrian walkway from the parking. And every time we walk up the walkway, Caroline stops to stand and straighten each flag. She's a keeper. 4Aug2017
