Jackson Hole ArtSpot Returns

by Jackson Hole Radio News

Jackson Hole Public Art’s ArtSpot is back with a message of HOPE for the community. The ArtSpot, both sculpture and rotating art venue, was removed last fall for repairs and has found a new home just across the street. The new location was provided by the Karns family and the Town of Jackson, who with over 75 Kickstarter backers and the support of Jorgensen Engineering and Westwood Construction, banded together to ensure a future for this long-standing, highly-visible art installation. The ArtSpot provides a venue for local artists to create site-specific installations. The ArtSpot originated from a sign that had been left behind when a service station nearby closed up and left a sign and post behind which was subsequently repurposed for the display of artwork. Since then, the installation has evolved to be more user-friendly.
