Join us for the 6th Annual Pikes Peak Litter Letter Project, a collaborative effort between the Fountain Creek Watershed Flood Control and Greenway District, Concrete Coyote, and Pikes Peak Outdoor Recreation Alliance. This extraordinary event brings together our community to create a remarkable sculpture using trash collected from our local waterways and public lands. It's a powerful demonstration of turning litter into art while highlighting the importance of environmental stewardship.
The Artistic Process:
The Pikes Peak Litter Letter Project begins during Creek Week, our flagship community cleanup program, where volunteers diligently collect trash and debris from our precious waterways. The collected materials, including plastics, cans, and other discarded items, serve as the artistic medium for the sculpture. During Creek Week, Cleanup Crew Leaders register their crew to fill a letter with trash collabortaively creating a word.
This year, the word is IMPACTFUL.
Celebrating Arts Month:
The completed sculpture will be proudly displayed throughout the month of October coinciding with Arts Month, a celebration of creativity and artistic expression in our community. This unique display serves as a powerful reminder of the impact of litter on our natural spaces and the possibilities of transforming waste into something beautiful and thought-provoking.
Engaging the Community:
The Pikes Peak Litter Letter Project invites our community to engage with the artwork and reflect on the importance of responsible waste management. As you admire the sculpture, take a moment to consider the impact of our actions on the environment and the steps we can take to preserve our natural spaces for future generations.
We encourage you to participate in Creek Week and other clean up events leading up to the Pikes Peak Litter Letter Project. By joining these efforts, you contribute to the creation of this unique community art piece and actively work towards a cleaner, greener future.
Creek Week crew leaders can sign up their crew to 'adopt' one of the letters through the registration process. The Crew will be responsible for filling it with trash during their cleanup. They will transport the letter to America the Beautiful Park on the day of the Dedication and take part in this unique art display.
Come and witness the transformation of trash into art during the 6th Annual Pikes Peak Litter Letter Project. Experience the power of community collaboration, environmental awareness, and artistic expression as we showcase the beauty that can be found even in the most unlikely places. Let us inspire each other to take better care of our local waterways and public lands. Together, we can make a difference.
Be part of this extraordinary project and celebrate the connection between art, community, and environmental stewardship.
Attend the Litter Letter Dedication on Wednesday, October 4th from 4-5 pm at America The Beautiful Park.
