Urban Campfires Arrive at the DAM

IMG_9318Warm weather is here, and the Denver Art Museum (DAM) is taking art outside!

WORKSHOP8 and Blue Spruce Design & Construction have transformed the Martin Plaza at the DAM to include a three-month participatory installation, called Summer Is…

Bringing visitors together for a shared experience, the design teams have created a series of urban campfires, encouraging guests to pull up a tree stump, relax on the plaza, and exchange stories of summer with friends and family.

IMG_9256Visitors are invited to write what Summer Is… to them on a tag and attach their memories, thoughts, and feelings. As the summer progresses, a canopy of tags will form across the plaza, creating a covering of shared summertime stories.

The project was selected from a call seeking local artists/architects to conceive of and build a sculptural installation for the busy plaza space allowing for visitor interaction. The selected team brought in four “campfires” in the form of platforms with stools. The project features:

 

The installation runs until September 15.
