Civic Center Art in the Park: Tree of Transformation
Thursday, January 18, 5 to 6 p.m.
Civic Center Park
In a welcome shift from the "giant blue animal" paradigm of public art in Denver, a new interactive installation called the "Tree of Transformation" is being unveiled today in Civic Center Park. Created by Denver-based artists Nick Geurts and Ryan Elmendorf of Yetiweurks, the Tree of Transformation combines light, sound, and touch for a multi-sensory experience sure to delight adults and children alike. Watch local musicians demonstrate the sonic potential of the Tree as the lovely yet ephemeral work of art makes its debut. Food trucks will be on hand to fortify visitors; "Tree of Transformation" will be on display in the park until April 15. Visit the Civic Center Conservatory’s events page for more information.
