Why Not Niwot? A Juried Art Show

Opening Reception - Peoples Choice Voting Begins

5:00pm - 8:30pm

Cottonwood Square & Old Town


The Why Not Niwot? Juried Art Show is an annual celebration of the arts and all things Niwot.

How it works

Each year local and regional artists submit works in April depicting the look, feel, and/or essence of the Niwot community, a vibrant and vintage Colorado town on the Front Range. In May the entries are on display all over town. Locals and visitors pick up a map of locations, visit each piece, and vote on their favorites. In June we announce two overall winners: First place as chosen by the selection committee, and first place as chosen by the people — as well as 2nd & 3rd place by the art show jury.

$500 Grand Prize — $250 2nd Place — $100 3rd Place

$100 People’s Choice Award

Winning piece will be used to market the 2017 Niwot Art Walk.
