Pikes Peak Litter Letter Project - September 30 - October 28, 2022
In celebration of Arts Month, the Pikes Peak Outdoor Recreation Alliance, Fountain Creek Watershed Flood Control and Greenway District, and Cultural Office of the Pikes Peak Region have joined forces to orchestrate the Pikes Peak Litter Letter Project. Each year, our local Litter Letter Project produces a unique piece of sculptural art that is constructed with trash collected from public lands and waterways during Creek Week. Local organizations, groups or teams "adopt" a letter to fill with the collected trash, that then spells out the word of the year for the art installation. This years word is PRICELESS! The Litter Letter Project is a wonderful cross-sector collaboration between the Arts, Outdoor Recreation, and Environmental sectors that benefits the entire region!
