CONNECTING THE DOTS
MODERN IN DENVER | WINTER 2014
Spend a few minutes wandering the halls of Denver Union Station and you’re bound to be struck not just by the dramatic ceilings or the eclectic eateries, but also by the art—not the safe, blend-into-the-scenery pastels that frequently clutter the walls of public spaces, but actual art. Challenging pieces that grab your attention and start conversations.
This isn’t mere good fortune, and it isn’t an accident. The 589 pieces that populate the Union Station collection were hand-picked over the course of more than six months under the guidance of NINE dot ARTS, a curating and consultancy outfit headquartered in Denver’s up-and-coming RiNo district. Taken together, the collection brings warmth and vitality to one of the city’s most historic landmarks.
