Construction contractor named champion of arts

FCI Constructors and Troy Reynolds are the latest recipients of Champion of Arts awards.

The Grand Junction Commission on Arts and Culture presents the awards to recognize leadership, generosity and dedication to arts and culture.

FCI was honored for its involvement in the Arts on the Corner sculpture program in downtown Grand Junction. FCI donates equipment, labor and expertise to install and relocate sculptures as part of the rotating exhibit. FCI has been involved with the program for 23 years and Reynolds for 19 years.

Gary Hauschulz and 12 other artists involved in the 2019 Art on the Corner program nominated FCI and Reynolds.

“The overwhelming support and knowledge of each volunteer from FCI is critical for the success of the Art on the Corner installation each year,” said Tina Ross, coordinator of the program. “The physical and mechanical requirements brought by the volunteers to place the sculptures is rarely considered by the viewer. However, these behind-the-scenes
heroes help make this all possible.”

Kyle Ocean, a participating artist from Fort Collins, also praised the FCI team. “They are efficient and extremely helpful, well prepared with tools and power options and it makes the install incredibly easy and stress free.”

FCI and Reynolds received a collaborative artwork by Mary Mansfield and Tish Collins titled “Compliments.”

Along with its headquarters in Grand Junction, FCI Constructors operates a total of eight other offices in six states. The company handles a range of projects, including those for the aviation, government, health care, higher education and office sectors. For more information, visit
