Brief Description

The selection panel members have set forth specific goals and parameters for this public art project with the hope of creating unique and inspiring works of art for the diverse communities that visit, work at, or near, and enjoy the 16th Street Mall. The panel is looking to commission artwork that will be beacons or gateways to the City of Denver and draw visitors to the Mall. Artworks should enhance the experience and engage multiple senses, harnessing tactile, light, and/or sound components to achieve these aims. Ground space on the Mall is limited and must remain open for public activity; therefore, works that utilize vertical, overhead, or other space-conserving strategies are encouraged. The selection panel is open to artwork in all media and materials suitable for outdoor display. However, the panel is not looking for two-dimensional artwork. Artists are asked to be mindful and respectful of the Mall's functionality, programs, and users.
