Summit County Art Forum
The Summit County Art Forum coordinates the display of public art for Summit County government. The committee also showcases the work of local artists in the Art Forum display space in the Summit County Commons building, featuring three exhibits per year.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, access to the Art Forum is limited to 9 a.m. - 5 p.m., Monday-Friday. Visitors are required to wear masks and maintain 6 feet of separation from one another while viewing art. If you have questions about the Art Forum, email Art Forum Program Assistant Karen LeCocq.
Art Forum Display Space
The Art Forum display space is located in the upper level of the County Commons building, 0037 Peak One Dr., Frisco. The space rotates its exhibit three times each year. Each exhibit is based on a particular theme, and the Art Forum committee selects works that interpret the theme in a variety of ways.
The theme of the current exhibit is “Healing" which will be on display through January 2021.
Submitting Art for Display
The Art Forum strives to display the work of artists who reside in Summit County, on at least a part-time basis. To submit art for the committee’s consideration, send an email to Art Forum Program Assistant Karen LeCocq. Please include photos of two or three samples of your work that fit within the upcoming exhibit theme.
