Denverites have until Sunday to see nine art ideas aimed at changing how people think about public spaces like the 16th Street Mall.
Prototypes featuring giant plastic prisms, mirrored cubes and other materials are on display on the 16th Street Mall and Curtis Street. The nine models are part of the inaugural Downtown Denver Prototyping Festival.
The Downtown Denver Partnership encouraged community members to submit creative proposals for the Prototyping Festival that were sustainable, engaging and created a unique sense of place along 16th Street.
Thirty-four submissions were received from the community in May. The nine winners received up to $2,500 to create installations to showcase at the mall.
Downtown visitors are encouraged to check out the nine prototypes and provide feedback to the Downtown Denver Partnership. The partnership is in the middle of planning the future of the aging mall constructed in 1982.
