AIRFOILS

THE SHOPS AT NORTHFIELD STAPLETON

ARTIST: PATRICK MAROLD (DENVER, CO)

COMMISSION: $100,000

INSTALLED: 2006

This piece’s three, kinetic “airfoils” are fashioned from salvaged, 737 tail stabilizers that speak to Stapleton’s past as well as the community’s mission of sustainability. The 16-foot sculptures also reflect the sky and their surroundings.

A fourth “airfoil” is installed in front of the Denver School of Science and Technology at 2000 Valentia St., and it’s on permanent loan to the school from The Park Creek Metropolitan District.
