Denver's 10 Most Recognizable Outdoor Art Installations: Can you name them all?

Meredith's Walking Art Tour Challenge!


Do you miss Art? This weekend will be weather-perfect for an easy walk around downtown to enjoy the unique art installations outdoors that make Denver more than just a little special.


I think all these sculptures are familiar to most Denverites, whether seen from our cars or during visits to Denver's Central Business District, the Denver Art Museum, or Denver Center for Performing Arts. Other than the Big Sweep, (there's one answer!) I would have lost every bet on guessing how the artists titled their works! Do you know the names of these landmark installations?




How many of these Denver landmark art exhibits do you know or can you guess correctly? Be sure to post/reply your results here!

(Answers are at the bottom, no peeking!)
