Brief Description

The Denver Arts & Venues Public Art Program seeks to commission an artist or team of artists to create an original work of art for the River North (RiNo) Promenade. The future promenade will be located along Arkins Blvd., between 35th and 38th streets. The selection panel has recommended either one site-specific artwork, or several site-specific artworks to be integrated along the promenade. The commission amount is approximately $80,000 USD. The River North (RiNo) Promenade project repurposes an existing local street within an aging industrial neighborhood which is rapidly transforming into a vital mixed-use art district at the edge of downtown Denver. Wenk Associates has developed conceptual planning and design development documents, transforming the site into a mile-long pedestrian promenade along the river’s edge. The promenade will be a linear park linking a series of outdoor “rooms” to accommodate flexible festival space, cafés, and an urban theater.
