"Bridge" is the first piece of public art in District 2. This contemporary sculpture was recently installed on the grassy median at S. Sheridan Blvd. and Lehigh St. "Bridge" stands at 15 feet on two geometric pillars, built from steel sub-frames sheathed in Cor-Ten steel, connected by a bridge section of black granite and laminated plate glass. The work honors and respects the neighboring community of Denver District #2 and the adjacent Ft. Logan National Cemetery, while acting as a visual gateway for the area.
