Blue Trees: Urban Jungle – Can Art Save the World?

Public Art

5/20/2017 12:00 PM

The Blue Trees is an ongoing environmental art installation by artist, Konstantin Dimopoulos. He transforms living trees into a surreal environment so that we stop and notice them. These trees speak for the swathes of Old Forests and Rain Forests that are removed every year around the globe. The colorant is water-based and biologically-safe.

In conjunction with the artist Konstantin Dimopoulos’ major outdoor environmental art installation “The Blue Trees” presented by the Denver Theatre District, Denver Digerati presents a corresponding tribute of motion-based artworks “Urban Jungle - Can Art Save the World?”

The approximately one-hour program, presented free to the public on the Theatre District‘s most prominent L.E.D. screen at 14th and Champa Street, is a visual celebration of nature, beauty and community brought into the urban context, with a nod to some of the challenges of this world in the face of a rapidly changing climate. The collection of works presented in the program range from the stately to the sublime, covering an array of approaches to motion art from artists around the world that are characteristic of today’s wide scope of creativity.

Whether art can save the world or not, there is no doubt that the natural world has always and will continue to inspire terrific art, and that our lives and community are much more livable as a result.
