National VelvetReturn To List

Artwork Type: Sculpture
Material: Fiberglass and Resin
Description: "National Velvet" provides downtown Denver with a striking new work of art that continues the artist’s trademark unorthodox approach to materials, form and contemporary ideas. Utilizing sand as the building blocks for a dynamic new visual motif, "National Velvet" conjures up multiple interpretations through its towering form and the tendrils that spiral through it. Viewers will delight in the sheer scale and playfulness of the work, the dominant red-hue piercing through the sky, both through the day and when lit from within at night.
