A new sculpture from the Colfax Ave Business Improvement District is looking to bring a little more vibrancy to the corridor.
The sculpture, which is bright pink and shaped in the logo of the BID, was installed in front of the Fillmore Auditorium last month. The auditorium is located at 1510 N. Clarkson St.
It was installed as part of the overall Streetscape Plan from the organization, which aims to improve the safety, appearance and development of Colfax Avenue.
“We’re thrilled for this piece to be out on the street,” said Colfax Ave BID Executive Director Frank Locantore in a news release about the installation. “Colfax is a place where everyone is welcome; we hope this sculpture will continue to bring the Colfax community together and allow people to take a little piece of the street with them when they go.”
The logo was designed by Denver-based firm ArtHouse Design.
The Colfax Ave BID is celebrating 30 years this month. Its borders are from Grant to Josephine streets and from East 14th to East 16th avenues.
For its 30th anniversary, the BID is partnering with the Fillmore for a photo competition. People who take photos at the sculpture and use the hashtag #ColfaxLove are entered to win tickets to a show at the Fillmore. Winners will be selected at the BID’s 30th anniversary party on Nov. 20.
