A Public Display
Denver has an impressive collection of public art — and tonight, some of those pieces will be in the spotlight during the Twilight Bike Tour, a two-wheeled spin around the city put on by Denver Arts & Venues.
“We have a handful of pieces in the city that have a night presence to them, and we thought it would be fun to combine them into a summertime evening bike tour,” says Rudi Cerri, administrator for the city’s public-art program. For example, Virginia Folkestad’s “Cur-rent 3” is a movement-activated work that lights up a bridge along the Cherry Creek path; Erick C. Johnson’s iconic, neon-lit “Bottom of the Ninth” is also a part of the moving exhibition. There will even be a stop at the OhHeckYeah! street arcade on Champa Street.
The Twilight Bike Tour begins at 8 p.m. tonight at the McNichols Building, 144 West Colfax Avenue, and will roll through various parts of downtown Denver. The tour is free, but helmets are required for all participants. For more information on this and other walking and biking public-art tours happening throughout the summer, visit artsandvenues.com.
