Bell of Renewal

Bell of Renewal

LAHC seeks the community's support

The Lyons Arts & Humanities Commission (LAHC) seeks your support for the construction of a unique public art piece, "Bell of Renewal," designed to symbolize community resiliency and commemorate Lyons Strong. The piece is currently underway by Colorado-based artists, James G. Moore and Anita Miller, and anticipated to be complete in Fall 2019. The sculpture will be installed along the river, in an appropriate, safe, and enduring location within Lyons.

Now, we're asking for your help! The LAHC is calling on the community for donations to bring this artwork to completion. 

With a donation of $250 donation or more, your name or company name will be added to a bronze plaque posted near the artwork. The deadline is September 1, 2019 to have your name listed on the plaque. All donations are welcome and tax deductible, and will be used for materials or associated placement costs.

Tax-deductible donations can be made through this link, or in person at Lyons Town Hall.

Originally scheduled for July 29, Boulder County Parks & Open Space and the Sheriff’s Office Fire Management Program now plan to conduct prescribed burns at Ron Stewart Preserve at Rabbit Mountain, beginning either on Wednesday, July 31, or Thursday, Aug. 1, weather and other conditions permitting. Ron Stewart Preserve will be completely closed during active ignition days. Specific areas will reopen as soon as it’s deemed safe to do so by fire personnel.

The prescribed burn will cover up to 140 acres and is located near the Little Thompson Overlook Trail and the Indian Mesa Trail (map). Additional acres may be burned at the preserve if conditions allow.

Smoke and flames may be visible for days to weeks following a prescribed burn, and there may be heavy smoke in the air. Please do not call 911, as a prescribed burn is not an emergency. The areas will be monitored to ensure fires are completely out.
