In the north side of Denver, a mile long park has become a space where the past merges with the present in markers, a series of four public art installations by artists Marek Walczak & Wes Heiss.
The works explore the evolving significance of the Clayton and Cole neighborhoods, the area that is home to the park, to residents past and present. All of the works are interactive and allow visitors to engage with each piece. Though each work is unique, they all share the same distinctive red-orange hue. They are also grounded in their connection to the site—whether it be by marking a direction, referencing local history, or embodying community connections. markers was inspired by a diversity of sources, including the local community and historical research.
