The mile high city has everything from competitive sports; great food, attractions, and skiing that make it a desirable place to live. When visiting though, many people comment on the extensive amount of public artwork the city showcases across the metropolitan area. Starting at the Denver International Airport, the “Blue Mustang” depicts Denver’s western heritage as it towers 32 feet tall, and is also a sample of what else the city displays. Not to mention Denver’s famous Santa Fe art district that features First Friday Art Walks each month. Whether you are here to stay or visiting for a few days it will be hard to miss the impressive public artwork installations and festivals this city has to offer.

The downtown area of Denver displays some incredible pieces of artwork that will catch anyone’s eye. One that stands tall next to the Denver Performing Arts Center is the “Dancers” statue by, Jonathon Brodsky. This pieces depicting two dancing outside of the DAC Theater is whimsical and displays much talent and simplicity as the large white sculpture looms over Speer Blvd.  Standing next to the statue may reminds one of the snow-covered mountaintops or how the beauty of Colorado is simple yet massive. As one continues into the downtown area the Denver Art Museum designed by, Daniel Libeskind, its truly must see landmark in the city. The large and industrially modern building houses world-class artwork, hands on art, a café, and even some classes. This is a great place for an art internship if one has the desire to display their creativity to the public. The building exhibits a unique design with a kaleidoscopic exterior of over a million reflective glass tiles that glimmer in the Denver’s fantastic sunlight. The buildings innovation is artistic and could be a show for itself, without having to enter the museum; this is one place that can’t be missed.

The Denver Convention Center also showcases a particularly recognizable art piece called, “I can see what you mean” by, Lawrence Argent, which is a giant blue bear peeking into the tall windowed wall. This piece is fun, innovative, and captures the wildlife appeal that Colorado has to offer. Along with talented public artwork, Denver has a few incredible art districts. More popular is that on Santa Fe. There are over one hundred galleries showcasing fourteen different art types from mixed media to fashion. On the first Friday of each month, “First Friday Art Walk” takes place showcasing current and new artist. This is an event where the art comes to life and interacts with viewers through street art, face painting, and much more. It’s an event you won’t want to end. All of the artists work hard to showcase their work and gain the proper recognition. Several art internships have used this space to highlight their best works and expose the great talent Denver has to offer.
