Lowry Art + Architecture Loop is Coming!

For the Love of Lowry

P.S. You Are Here!

 

About the Community Art Project

In 2023, The Lowry Foundation is celebrating 25 years of serving the community. Formed to serve the community after the Lowry Air Force Base began redevelopment, we want to mark this milestone by creating a special community art project. The Lowry Art + Architecture Loop will encourage and promote well-being and active mobility for residents and visitors, bringing people together. Professional artists will work with the community to create temporary and interactive art experiences in each park. The artwork themes will tie to the community’s heritage, environmental conservation, social engagement, and community building through play. This project links four city-owned parks with Lowry’s historic architecture and public art. The parks include Bayaud Park, Crescent Park, Great Lawn Park, and the Dog Park Open Space.

About the Open Space Project Site

The Lowry Foundation has found an amazing partner in the Museum of Outdoor Arts (MOA) to round out our Art + Architecture Loop. MOA is creating a temporary public art project at the Lowry open space site near the dog park along Yosemite Way and Sports Park Boulevard. Two prominent Denver artists have been invited to develop a proposal for a unique, site-specific public artwork to feature in this area. More information will be shared as the logistics are worked out.

The trail is funded by a grant from Arts & Venues Denver/City and County of Denver, Clark’s Market 2023 Star Partnership, and an in-kind partnership with the Museum of Outdoor Arts.

This project is part of the City and County of Denver’s P.S. You Are Here grant program, a neighborhood beautification program for community by community.

About The Lowry Foundation

The Lowry Foundation preserves and celebrates the legacy and spirit of Lowry. We accomplish this through community programs to create social connections, celebrate ethnic and cultural diversity, honor legacy, promote our business community, and take care of our architectural and public art assets. We offer architecture and public art tours, community service volunteer activities, and support local non-profits and community groups. We operate a community center in the historic Eisenhower Chapel offering community activities such as concerts, film nights, speaker series, and community meeting space. We own 18 public artworks and the historic Eisenhower Chapel, which is a Denver Historic Landmark.
