Downtown Colorado Springs will start to look a little different in the next few months as the 20th annual "Art on the Streets" takes over.

This year marks as the 20th annual "Art on the Streets" in downtown Colorado Springs, and the public exhibit will not only add a pop of color across a two-mile stretch, but it will also transform the overall aesthetic of downtown as works from all over the world are featured. The pieces will be on display in early June. "That's what makes us different from a museum, you don't have to pay admission, you don't have to do anything special," Claire Swingford, a member of The Downtown Partnership, told KOAA. "And you can touch the pieces, which we like." [gallery type="rectangular" size="large" ids="37333,37336,37335"] The artists whose work will be on display include:
  • Neil Fenton & Nathaniel Baker of Colorado Springs (collaborative work)
