Additional information about SSPRD and SSPAC can be accessed at ssprd.org and about Hudson Gardens at www.hudsongardens.org.

Goodson is visited annually by 400,000 people of all ages. It offers fitness facilities, a swimming pool, dance classes, a licensed preschool, gymnasium, gymnastic arena, racquetball courts, cultural arts classrooms and meeting rooms. The site is located adjacent to the High Line Canal Trail, a popular regional trail and deKoevend Park. Many trail users utilize Goodson Recreation Center as a trailhead or rest stop.
At Goodson, the sculptures will be displayed on the three existing concrete pads available (36” in diameter), which are located near the main entrance to the center. Each pad has an embedded steel plate (24” x 24” x 1/2”) for the artwork to be welded in place. Sculptures must be of a size to fit on the provided concrete pads, and cannot exceed 4,000 pounds in overall weight.
Over 130,000 people of all ages visit Hudson Gardens year-round for the popular outdoor concerts, walking areas, garden tours, weddings, holiday light show, and other events. The site is located adjacent to the Mary Carter Greenway Trail and South Platte River. At Hudson Gardens, three outdoor display pads will be constructed prior to the exhibit period. There is no size restriction for sculptures at Hudson Gardens, but the overall weight cannot exceed 4,000 pounds.
Proposed sculptures must be appropriate for outdoor public display at a public facility and of high artistic quality. Sculptures must be an original work of the selected artist, durable, non-breakable, relatively maintenance-free, meet or exceed standard for public safety and structural integrity, and composed of parts not easily damaged by weather or vandalism.
Sculptures must be loaned to SSPRD and HG for a one-year exhibition period. The piece of artwork must be available for sale, and if sold, must remain on display for the duration of the exhibition period.
