COZAD, NE – This last Spring, the community of Cozad had it’s street brightened up with artistic icons in the shape of art palettes.
Placed in front of businesses, in parks and other staple areas of the town, the art palettes not only add an interesting factor to the town, but also tell the history of Cozad.
“We chose 20 places that have high visibility…because we wanted as many people as possible to get to see them and give a great first impression when people are touring the town,” says Jennifer McKeone, Executive Director for Cozad Development Corporation.
Artists from all over Nebraska and within the community of Cozad each created a palette to make a total of 20 palettes.
“We had a couple of people who thought it would be cool to celebrate Cozad’s art heritage by doing a public art project,” said McKeone.
This coming fall, the art palettes will be auctioned off. All proceeds will go towards the welcome entryway off of I-80 into the community of Cozad.
To find a full list of locations and all artists you can find a brochure at any sponsoring businesses around Cozad.
