New installation outside Denver Art Museum: "Giant Scaffolding"

Art lovers everywhere are raving about the Denver Art Museum's newest conceptual sculpture, "Giant Scaffolding to Repair Piece of Shit Leaky Roof."

Not long after the $110 million Frederic C. Hamilton Building opened in October 2006, crews began conducting construction dance performances across the silver-skin roof in response to the unintended water features that had accompanied Daniel Libeskind's design.

Museum administrators hope that the much anticipated "Giant Scaffolding" -- now installed prominently between the sculptures "Big Ass Dustpan" and "Tall Black Pointy Rock Thing" -- will set the stage for DAM's ambitious summer series "Shit We Need to Fix 2009."
