Enhanced Vision Our community’s primary goal as stated in the Teton County Comprehensive Plan is to preserve and protect our area’s ecosystem. To address this challenge, JH Public Art is reinforcing its commitment to support artists who practice sustainable techniques and whose artworks inspire acts of conservation. By siting artworks in iconic public settings, JH Public Art aims to reach broad audiences with conservation messages through public art. Our approach is simple: We will commission artists who can galvanize shifts in our behavior and thinking by bringing awareness to topics in emotionally compelling ways with public artwork that illuminates complex issues and energizes people to become better stewards of the environment.

Glow Nights The second year of GLOW Nights opened in December 2019 as a month-long “must-see� exhibit of original art installations in both Teton Village and the town of Jackson. Artists used colored and white light within their works as a medium to reflect the unique phenomena found in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. GLOW Nights celebrates light, art, and awe in the dark of the winter. Three installations in the town of Jackson complemented five in Teton Village, creating a valley wide exhibition that engaged young and old alike. With the wonderful support of many community partners, JH Public Art hosted two successful events enjoyed by hundreds of locals and visitors.

ArtSpot The ArtSpot is the only rotating public art venue in the valley. Designed and fabricated by Bland Hoke, the ArtSpot is a high-visibility installation passed by more than 30,000 daily drivers commuting to and from the town of Jackson. The ArtSpot program provides local artists with stipends and technical support to create artwork for a high visibility venue.

Inspiration, everywhere.

The ArtSpot was in need of maintenance and a new home, which requires an engineered base and a new foundation. With the generous support of 75 individuals, businesses, and art enthusiasts we met our goal to Save the ArtSpot. Thanks to all of you, the ArtSpot will have a new home on Broadway this spring!



Mobile Studio For the third year in a row, JH Public Art, Hole Food Rescue, and Teton Literacy Center partnered to provide art activities, books, and food to over 800 local children in parks and neighborhoods throughout Jackson. The Mobile Studio program helps alleviate food insecurity while offering creative learning opportunities for children not enrolled in summer programs. New this year, JH Public Art hired the Art Association’s outreach staff to provide free art activities for local youth.

Stickum Up! This past summer, Stickum Up grew to include 18 local artists, sponsored by 9 local businesses. The temporary murals add beauty to underutilized public spaces and create a walkable downtown art show, with maps at each site guiding viewers from one artwork to the next. High-resolution images provided by local artists are wheat-pasted onto downtown alley walls and power washed off at the end of the display.


This year JH Public Art offered free tours of the murals including one given in Spanish.

FoundSpace The Jackson Hole Land Trust invited the community to join five local artists at the fourth annual FoundSpace installation at Emily Stevens Park in Wilson. The event encouraged the community to interact with art installations and explore protected open spaces while celebrating the crossroads of art and conservation. Artist coordination was provided by JH Public Art.

Inspiration, everywhere.

Major Bison Major Bison made a move! The large, bright red Bison sculpture that had proudly stood along the Moose Wilson Road was transported to Teton Village in September. Local artist John Simms, in collaboration with JH Public Art, Teton Village Association, and Diehl Gallery, found a new home for the artwork in the green field along McCollister Drive. JH Public Art and Teton Village Association continue to work together to activate and beautify vital public spaces.

Gen 2 TramCar Restoration The newly restored, secondgeneration tramcar debuted this holiday season as a permanently sited gallery at the base of Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. The tramcar began operations in 1966 but was retired in 2005. JH Public Art proposed the concept of the tram as a rotating artspace and helped facilitate the restoration. Artists will be invited seasonally to install exhibits in the rotating gallery space, which is now equipped with modern audio visual capabilities.

Park(ing) Day JH Public Art celebrated PARK(ing) Day on September 20, 2019. PARK(ing) Day is a worldwide event where artists, designers, and citizens transform parking spots into temporary public parks. PARK(ing) Day helps us imagine public space for people instead of cars, highlighting the inspiring work of local designers and artists to increase pedestrian vitality in town. New this year, JH Public Art teamed up with the Pathways Department to create an age-friendly pedestrian mall in downtown Jackson. Seniors in our community were invited to engage in art-making activities, receive free haircuts, relax in Sage Living rocking chairs, and take a spin on a Trishaw bike. PARK(ing) Day was supported through a grant from the American Association of Retired People (AARP) and the Wyoming Business Council.

Inspiration, everywhere.

Moonshot 5x5 On January 10, 2019 JH Public Art hosted the second annual Moonshot 5x5 to pitch ambitious public art ideas that challenge what we think is possible. Seven local creatives presented their big, bold ideas at the Center for the Arts with 5 slides in 5 minutes. The ideas ranged from Corey Milligan’s historical large-scale mural to Natalia Macker’s legislative theater pitch. Jenny Dowd’s “Cloud Factory” idea was picked up after the event, and will be debuting at the Town Enclosure on March 13, 2020.

Public Piano Last May, JH Public Art teamed up with the Center for the Arts to revitalize a neglected piano that had been on campus for many years. Jackson-based artist Haley Badenhop was selected from the artist call, and the piano, which sat on Cache Street, was enjoyed all summer long. The public piano created a neighborhood vibe on The Center campus, inviting daily participation in the arts.
