Summer is...

June 17, 2014–September 7, 2014
Now Closed: June 17, 2014–Sep 7, 2014
Martin Plaza

Summer is… brings the allure of a Colorado summer staple—campfires—to downtown Denver. Made from beetle-kill pine, recycled camping rope, and other recycled materials, these urban campfires offer the perfect place for rest and relaxation. Visitor-submitted story tags create a canopy of leaves, making Martin Plaza a great spot to enjoy the season.

Story tags and pens are provided on the plaza.

Summer is... is the result of an open call the DAM put out in the Denver area last fall, seeking local artists/architects to conceive of and build a sculptural installation for the busy plaza space. Summer is.. was designed by Boulder-based WORKSHOP8 and Blue Spruce Design & Construction.

Summer is….is made possible through a generous grant from the PB&K Family Foundation.
