The construction taking place on the Delgany Street pedestrian bridge over Cherry Creek…is really an art installation. The work is a structure designed by Colorado artist Patrick Marold. It involves hundreds of steel rods creating a “cloud” landscape that changes its appearance from every angle of view, throughout the day, and with the seasons.
Marold was selected to provide an installation funded by the Denver Office of Cultural Affairs, now called Arts and Venues. The bridge, owned by the Greenway Foundation, is one of the historic old railroad bridges spanning Cherry Creek. This public art project joins the already installed “LoDo Lights”, a contemporary and interactive piece on Manny’s Bridge, the pedestrian link at Wynkoop Street. Lodo Lights was featured at Denver by the Slice at this link.
You can see more of Marold’s work here, at his website. And, watch for the public dedication of the Delgany work in the next few weeks. We’ll report it here. But, go take a look! And, be careful crossing the streets!
