A mile-long park in Denver, Colo., has become a place where the past meets the present, reflected in four public art installations created by Walczak & Heiss called markers.
markers reflects what the area has meant to current & past residents of the Clayton & Cole neighborhoods, where the park is located. All of the pieces provide opportunities for observers to interact with them. Each is distinctive but all four feature a red-orange color that subtly unifies them. They also share the common function of marking something in the site – a direction, a piece of history, or a personal connection. Inspiration for the pieces came from a variety of sources, from historical research to direct input from community members.
