About the event

In December 2021, Colorado Springs City Parks partnered with the Golden Lotus Foundation (GLF) and acquired 8.48 acres of the former Stratton land/PEO Chapter House, at 1819 W Cheyenne Road, Colorado Springs, CO 80906 designated by the Colorado Springs City Council as The Asian Heritage Center. Landscape and building architect renderings were done in 2022, and now Parks/GLF are doing cleanup that includes natural lily pond and Cheyenne Creek. This is a lovely place already used on a limited basis but funds are needed to ensure the vision, to include asian gardens and a tea house, is realized.  This art exhibition and sale is to raise funds to ensure the wonderful lily pond that artists have enjoyed painting for years is maintained and accessible.  This will be an online only show and juried competition.  Reproduction of artwork images for all accepted entries in this exhibition may be used by the Asian Heritage Center/Golden Lotus Foundation without further consent of or notification to the artist or the artist’s agent for promotion and fundraising.
