14th Street turns into Treasure Hunt

Since 2002, the 14th Streetscape project has transformed the street that welcomes many visitors to Downtown Denver.  Thanks to the Downtown Denver Partnership,  The Downtown Denver Business Improvement District, the City and County of Denver and The 14th Street property owners, 14th Street has inherited over 150 trees, bike racks, amazing lighting, and much more.

But that’s not all….

Artists Walczak & Heiss along with the Denver Arts & Venues Public Art Program have formally dedicated Denver’s newest public artwork, The 14th Street Overlay.   This new public disply of artwork takes visitors on a journey that not only helps them explore Denver’s heritage, but helps them see the beauty of historic 14th Street.  To engage guests in the artwork, 23 small interactive bronze sculptures are embedded in the streetscape and mounted on bicycle racks that span from Larimer St. to Colfax Avenue.  Can you guess what the objects are and how they relate to Denver’s history?  That’s for us not to tell and you to find out.

To experience it for yourself, “The 14th Street Overlay” map can be found here.  A stroll on a beautiful day in the Mile High City doesn’t get any better than that!
