Love Your Trails | Babe Walls | Taza Gallery | Clear Creek Welby Mural | Murals for Hope | Xólotl: Dios Perro
Babe Walls came to the inaugural Adams County PRIDE and painted seven murals with amazing local artists. Each wall was a collaboration between two artists, and a community wall gave young future babes space to create.
The walls are on display at Riverdale Regional Park for the next six months and will then be moved to new homes throughout the county. We’ll share those locations when they go on tour!

Corridor Creative Arts League
A Year in Review
Corridor Creative Arts League nourishes the artistic community in the 1-70 corridor with enriching art experiences for the public and professional development opportunities for artists.
The paintings, photographs, and mixed media works on display reflect the wide range of workshops CCAL hosted in 2022.
Sarah Bennett, Pam Erickson, Laurie Leftwich, Jamie Z Lockwood, Angie Perryman, Carl Steitz, Regina White, Nicole Zacharias
Corridor Creative Arts League (CCAL) was created in 2020 to support artists in the I-70 corridor. Founders Jamie Zerr-Lockwood and Laurie Leftwich identified a need for adult arts programming in their rural town of Bennett, CO. They created CCALL to bring a greater understanding of art and the creative process to their community through art education classes in a variety of media. CCAL is open to artists of all career levels.
Clear Creek Welby Mural
Adams County Public Works constructed a box culvert to connect York St. to the Clear Creek Trail in the Welby neighborhood. Muralist Anna Charney installed her work around and within the tunnel, depicting the water flow of Clear Creek and the traffic flowing above on 224.
Check out Anna’s work here or follow her @annacharneyart.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Adams County Parks, Open Space & Cultural Arts Department launched public art projects to bring hope and joy to communities, inspire residents and visitors, and fuel the local economy. Learn more about Murals for Hope and sculpture series here.
Xólotl: Dios Perro (Dog Deity) is 20’ tall paper-mâché sculpture, on display at the Adams County Human Services Center. Dios Perro is an Alebrije depicting the Aztec God Xólotl, Lord of the underworld. This joyful, vibrant work is by Mexican contemporary artist, Óscar Becerra-Mora.
