The City of Aurora Brings Back the NAP
Mary Koernig, the Public Art Coordinator for the City of Aurora, CO commented that everyone was very pleased that they brought back the NAP employee art show after missing out in 2012. With the reinstatement of the show came great success and their best participation to date. Even though their seventh year was their largest exhibition yet, Mary is already looking ahead. She plans to open the show up to new groups including both city retirees and volunteers in 2014.
In addition to the growth in numbers, Mary is also working on other aspects of the show. Once again they incorporated a "Recycle/Reuse" artwork category to add interest to the exhibition and also offered a People’s Choice award to further engage employees. Tweaking the show in small ways can certainly help to keep it fresh year after year and we applaud her efforts.
We are pleased to have Aurora back on board and with a great new coordinator we know the sky is the limit for this beautiful exhibition!
