Levitt Denver seeking artists for public art project

LevittPavilionDenverCalling all Colorado-based artists!

Last week, Levitt Pavilion Denver released a Request for Qualifications seeking local artists for a public art project to be displayed at the new music venue, opening in 2017 at Ruby Hill Park.

Funded by Denver’s One Percent for Art Ordinance, the Levitt Denver project follows in the city’s long-standing tradition of celebrating public art. Since establishing its Public Art Program in the 1980s, the Mile High City has installed over 150 works including the Colorado Convention Center’s I See What You Mean (Lawrence Argent) and the Denver Performing Arts Complex’s Dancers (Jonathan Borofsky).

  • Also known as the Big Blue Bear, Lawrence Argent's iconic 40-foot high I See What You Mean sculpture peeks into the Colorado Convention Center's lobby.

Upon completion, the Levitt Denver piece will feature a design that speaks to community-based connections, music, the sky and other celestial themes. The selection panel is open to artwork in all media and materials, including light and sound, with the exception of 2-D artworks and murals.
