The Playhouse Project is a public art exhibit to take place within the town of Dillon over a four-week period in summer 2022. This unique marketing event will incorporate three to five playhouses designed and built in partnership with local construction companies. The event will be marketed across Colorado as a must-see exhibit, driving traffic and visitors to Dillon throughout the exhibit. Once the playhouses are revealed, we will host an online auction with proceeds being donated to Summit Advocates. The houses will then be delivered to their purchasers, where their children can enjoy them for years to come.
