No one has ever seen the Burrell family of Niwot in a sleigh pulled by flying reindeer, but that didn’t stop them from delivering a huge gift to the community.

Last week, the Burrell Family Foundation donated $10,000 to the Niwot Cultural Arts Association (NCAA), earmarked for purchase of “Waco Curves II” by Rollin Karg, one of the nine pieces currently installed in Niwot’s new sculpture park at Community Corner. The NCAA, which has also contributed donated art known as “Spirit of the River Does Not Live Long in a Drainage Pipe” by the late Scott Reuman to the town’s new public art space, has now made the second permanent installation. The other seven sculptures are available for purchase from the artists, whether for donation to the community sculpture park or for private collections.

“We’re very grateful to the Burrell family for their generous donation to the community,” NCAA President Biff Warren said. “The Sculpture Park Committee worked very hard to create a place in Niwot for the display of public art. The Burrell Family Foundation, which was also a generous donor to the Niwot Children’s Park, has set an example that we hope others will follow in helping make Niwot a place where public art is available and appreciated.”
