denver art museum: roof sculpture garden

should you find yourself in denver -- or more specifically denver's art museum -- it would be an absolute crime to miss this: the roof sculpture garden. this bit of the museum has such a democratizing, pedestrian force about it: you're essentially walking -- sometimes alone, or in pairs, or in batches -- amongst an art form all its own, and it's so interesting to see the way folks interact with it. i love the way the angles of the roof's viewing points cut off or aggrandize different parts of the skyline -- my favorite thing to think about is how, even as the structure stays the same, its perspective will constantly be shifting as the skyline enveloping it does. 

robbie & i marveled at the way one particular wall seemed more accessible than the others -- more open, perhaps easier to catch a glimpse of the full skyline from. but as we walked closer to the wall, it appeared to get taller and taller, cropping our view the nearer we got. 


  1. This looks amazing!! I love the way you described your interaction with it, and how the angles impacted your experience. Hope to visit it someday.

  2. Love these photos, definitely somewhere I'd like to visit one day!
