Art is in the eye of the beholder they say, but in this case it is on a wall under the Interstate 25 bridge. You might have thought the traffic was bad already, on Park Avenue, now there is an amazing, graffiti mural distracting Denver drivers.
This isn’t the illegal kind of graffiti, it is funded by the Denver Urban Arts Fund as an anti-graffiti project. The wall is a popular spot for people to ‘tag’ their names or paint; now it is simply a piece of artwork. A mixture of local poetry and gorgeous profiles.
The project is led by artist, Brenda Clearly, along with some of her family and students. The Urban Arts Fund, paid for by the Denver Arts and Venues, is responsible for 70 different projects to cover up ‘hot spots’ for graffiti. Denver will continue to grow as an arts and cultural city, with the help of local profits and artists eager to make it a beautiful place.
