Brief Description

The City of Denver’s Public Art Program seeks to commission an artist or artist team for a site-specific artwork at the soon-to-be renovated Iowa Avenue underpass between S. Acoma Street and S. Santa Fe Drive in the Overland Neighborhood. The recommended location for the artwork is along the retaining wall for a new Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant, multi-use path connecting Broadway Boulevard and the adjacent communities to the Overland Park Golf Course and the South Platte River trail system. The goal of the public art commission is to create a warm, safe and welcoming experience for the users of the pedestrian/bicycle path through imagery and prose. The selection committee highly recommends for the artist or artist team to collaborate with a writer for original content which may also include poetry.
