Eastgate spans 39th Avenue and an adjacent bike path, an extruded ribbon-like structure that loops on itself, creating an organic truss-like structure. Materially, the rich patina of the Corten steel ties the work to the industrial and rail history of its location. Eastgate provides both a literal and metaphorical portal, an invitation to playful exchange, discovery and inquiry.
Commissioned by Denver Public Art for the new 39th Avenue Greenway, a linear park created over a massive storm water management complex.
