Human connection is as fundamental as our need for food and water, and while the pandemic raged on, many turned to their pets to help fill the void. They provided a safe zone for physical touch that so many were craving, the ability to cope better with the chaos that was surrounding us and the inspiration to find routine when we felt like there was none. For many the benefits they provided were truly life saving.
The Lone Tree Arts Commission is seeking conceptual works in any medium of these unsung heroes. We ask that each submission be accompanied by a story/narrative about how the subject impacted you or someone else during the pandemic. Artists must be local to Colorado or within driving distance, no submissions will be accepted by mail.   

Prizes will be awarded for the following: Best of Show, Runner-Up, and Best Young Artist (ages 13-18).
