GEODES

CENTRAL PARK BOULEVARD BRIDGE EMBELLISHMENTS 

ARTIST: ANDY DUFFORD (DENVER, CO)

INSTALLED: 2003

The Central Park Boulevard Bridge serves as one gateway to the neighborhood. These embellishments on the Bridge take their inspiration from geode formations. Carved from limestone, each form is split in half and then split again to create surfaces that reveal the play of light and shadow throughout the day and at night. People walking or biking around the bridge can experience these geodes shapes. The shapes can also be appreciated by people driving by.

This project was funded, in part, by an allocation of $450,000 in public art funds provided by the Denver Urban Renewal Authority.
