Volunteer artists needed to decorate yard art cranes

On Saturday afternoon, artistic cranes graced the lawn in front of the Bud Werner Memorial Library for the Crane Yard Art display and silent auction event held in conjunction with the Yampa Valley Crane Festival this weekend.

The Colorado Crane Conservation Coalition is seeking volunteer artists to decorate yard art cranes for the fifth annual Yampa Valley Crane Festival crane yard art exhibit and silent auction.

Blank wood and metal cranes will be distributed to participating artists in April and must be returned fully decorated by Aug. 15.

Diverse and creative decorating motifs are encouraged, but artists are requested to consider materials that withstand the outdoors, since the cranes are designed as yard ornaments.

Decorated cranes will be displayed with credit to the artists on the Bud Werner Memorial Library lawn during the Yampa Valley Crane Festival, which will be held Sept. 8 to 11.

Support Local Journalism

All proceeds from the crane yard art silent auction will benefit the Yampa Valley Crane Festival and the new Crops for Cranes conservation program.
