Location: Burns Park

Artwork Type: Sculpture

Material: Plywood and Fiberglass

Description: This piece is an abstract sculpture composed of three red diamond shapes, set upright on their pointed tips. They are arranged in a triangle and touch on the inside points. The sculpture was created as part of the June 1968 Denver Sculpture Symposium, in which nine artists took part. The symposium was sponsored by a non-profit organization ""Art For The Cities, Inc.,"" and the artists were paid moderate fees for their work, with materials donated by local and national sources. The sculptures were donated to the City in August of 1968. The sculptures were originally intended to only be temporary. Of nine of the original sculptures, four remain. The fiberglass was added in 1975 to protect the wood surface of the sculpture from further weathering.
