The Loveland Fire & Ice Festival is calling on all qualified, local artists to create a propane controlled, fire sculpture to be displayed and lit at the 2018 Loveland Fire & Ice Festival. Chosen artists will have the opportunity to show off their fire sculpture, as well be entered into a competition for a chance to win the “People’s Choice Fire Sculpture Award”.
Winners of the “People’s Choice Fire Sculpture” award will be determined based on the highest number of votes received by our Loveland Fire & Ice Festival guests. The award ceremony will take place on our Main Stage, Sunday, February 11th (time to be determined).
The propane controlled fire sculpture must meet all safety, size regulations and specifications. The Festival will provide the propane needed to adequately fuel the fire sculpture during the Festival.
Submitted designs must reflect the 2018 Loveland Fire & Ice Festival’s “Classic Winter Valentine” theme . The artists will own their sculpture at the conclusion of the event and will be responsible for arranging transportation of their artwork.
Sculptures are displayed on 4th Street between Washington Avenue and Garfield in historic downtown Loveland. Artists wishing to get an idea of the space may contact Blazen Illuminations to see an event map or schedule a time to walk the site together. However, be advised as the event approaches, the layout of the event map may change and final layout is at the discretion of the Festival Producers. To schedule an appointment or discuss details, contact Heidi Webb, Executive Producer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
