The annual Art on Parade program is an outdoor loan sculpture exhibit funded by NAHF and the Adams County Science and Cultural Facilities District (SCFD). Artists lend their pieces to the program for a year, and park patrons are invited to vote for their favorite either by paper ballots available at the Northglenn Recreation Center or online at http://northglennarts.org/public-art/art-on-parade/. The deadline to vote is Friday, November 11, 2022.

The sculpture with the most votes is dubbed ‘The People’s Choice’ and will be purchased by NAHF and donated to the town of Northglenn for permanent placement in the town. Sculptures are also available for sale to the public.

The sculptures are on display at E.B. Rains Jr. Memorial Park until May 2023. The park is located at 11701 Community Center Drive; half a mile south of 120th Avenue and Grant Street in Northglenn.
