Lowry Art + Architecture Loop
For the Love of Lowry
The Lowry Foundation is proud to announce that a unique four-mile art and architecture trail is open in Lowry, connecting four city parks. The Lowry Art + Architecture Loop encourages and promotes well-being and active mobility for residents and visitors, bringing people together. Professional artists worked 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.

E. 6th Avenue & Uinta Way (near Sundial)
High School students from Bishop Machebeuf, Denver School of Technology, George Washington, Denver School of the Arts, Regis Jesuit, and St. Mary’s Academy created ground murals at Lowry’s Sundial at Great Lawn Park. Led by artist Yazz Atmore, the murals are a representation of their creative spirits.
Open Space/Dog Park
Yosemite Way and Sports Park Boulevard
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.
7700 E. Bayaud Avenue
Artist Keri Deixler led Elementary and Middle school students in a project to create heritage flags. Kids came from Denver Language School, McAuliffe, Steck, Westerly Creek, Carson, Hill, and Lowry Elementary Schools. The flags will be installed along with Lowry’s Air Force base-inspired wind flags in Bayaud Park. See pictures here.
Touring Lowry’s Historic Buildings
There are 18 historic buildings in Lowry, and seven of them are featured in the Loop tour.
The Lowry Art + Architecture Loop project is funded by Denver Arts & Venues through the P.S. You Are Here program, with additional sponsorship from Clark’s Market Lowry, and in-kind sponsorship from the Museum of Outdoor Arts.
