'duct-work' Viaduct Murals

On Saturday, Oct. 1, the artists were on site to complete their work while hundreds of visitors stopped by to watch the transformation take place. Local vendors chatted with community members and offered their own art projects. Music filled the air as the once dark and dingy viaducts became beautiful pieces of street art for the 8,500 vehicles who pass through the area each day. Kids even got a chance to practice their urban art skills on a wall set aside just for them.

Denver took notice of the welcomed change - check out just some of the media coverage the transformation received!
