Working in the creative field alters the way you see things. To some, the I-70 viaduct was a dark, shadowy and sometimes intimidating area, but to CIG, we saw the beauty… the future… the possibilities. That vision became known as ‘duct-work — the collaboration of more than 20 local artists, one creative team, one connected curator, one diligent non-profit, one open-minded government agency, nine generous sponsors and a $6,000 grant from the Denver Urban Arts Fund that made it all possible.
In late-September, ‘duct-work vision became reality as 20 local artists unleashed their creative minds on the blank concrete walls of the I-70 viaduct in northeast Denver. Within a few days, the area was transformed into bright, energizing and breathtaking art.
